Forgotten Treasure: Supafrico 2 : The Sound of Funky Africa

Late seventies and early eighties mega-rare superb afro-funk nuggets!

First up is the excellent Afro Disco groove of Kabbala’s ‘Ashewo Ara’, next is Buari’s ‘I’m Ready’, a chunk of pure dancefloor dynamite with a driving disco groove and great funky synths, taken from the Ghanian singer and percussionist’s awesome 1979 ‘Disco Soccer’ LP. On the flip we get the mega-rare and totally essential ‘Body & Soul’, a magnificent 10 minute mid-tempo Afro workout recorded in 1980 by Nigerian funkster William Onyeabor. Last up is a great extended edit of the Ashantis’ brilliant funky bubbler ‘Everybody’s Groove’ with its floor-filling groove and wicked vocals. These lovingly remastered rarities sound better than ever making this EP a must for anyone with a taste for those incredible funky Afro grooves.
