Crate-diggers and masters of the fastidious reissue Soundway are back with this hoard of ‘70s/’80s East African rarities. Covering 32 tracks sifted from long deleted 7”s this is all gold, no silt: a speeded-up Toots and the Mayatals on ‘Mu Africa’ from The Rift Valley Brothers, ‘Cha-Umheja’ from Afro 70 with its wah-wah guitar and brass instrument chorus, and New Gatagna Sound’s reggae/Afro-funk hybrid on ‘Thona Na Caki’. Guaranteed to bring a tear to the eye of anyone’s who’s visited Kenya (and that includes Tropical Livestock Consultants).
