Following the success of the first installment back in 2009, Analog Africa return with the second volume in their acclaimed Afrobeat Airways series. Taking in more ultra rare high-life influenced 70’s funk, this is an incredible snapshot of some of the music that was igniting dance floors across the West African nation during this period. From more well know names like K. Frimpong and Nana Ampedu (leader of the mighty African Brothers Band), through to obscure cuts from the likes of Los Issufu and his Moslems and Waza Afrika 76, this is a timely reminder of the incredible body moving music that was coming out of Ghanaian dancefloors in the 70’s and 80’s. – Ian Pither
