Note Program notes ([10] p.) by Martin Sinnock inserted into container.
"This album features music produced in sub-Saharan West Africa from the late 1950's up to the early 1980's- a golden era in African music. With highlife guitars and horns, Guinean big-band music, early Senegalese mbalax with its tasty Latin influences and the funky Afro-beat sound that shakes the hippest dancefloors across the globe, this is the big beat of West Africa!"--Container.
