The rise of Afro-beat has made music fans more aware of the great music that came out of West Africa in the '70s. But while Fela Kuti's amazing Afro-beat creations were groundbreaking stuff, many musicians were content to stick closer to funk and soul music. This 10-track compilation is straight from the James Brown school of funk, although various groups also pull in elements of African music, calypso, disco, Latin, and boogaloo. Compiled by the promising new Afrodisiac label, which is at the center of L.A.'s Afro-funk scene, Booniay!! A Compilation of West African Funk features some great music. People probably won't recognize names like Bright Engelberts, Matata, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, and Atomic Bomb Zigoto, but they're all essential contributors to this treasure trove of topnotch, rare grooves that will make a welcome addition to any funketeer's collection. The pot is sweetened by the fact that this album has a warm analog sound that's been lovingly cleaned up. --Tad Hendrickson

I cannot stop playing this Booniay!! compilation. What a killer group of Afro-beat bliss. That song Body and Soul...I first heard it at a dance club and wasn't sure if it was Fela or Funkadelic or maybe even some Sun Ra shimmy. The whole album is soaked with soul-izing, ass shaking wonderment.

Man this album is the best. I found old out of print albums years ago at a library and have been looking for compilations ever since. This is not the same album set I found, but it opened me up to even more funk from the Motherland. This album is so funky you'd have to air out your house. Get it out of curiousity. Get it for pure afrofunk pleasure. For DJs- this is sample supreme.
