If you don't feel the groove then you are, in fact, grooveless.

Not sure why our track listing was missing side e & f before... not songs to be missed.

Probably one of the only exceptions I have for listening to artist compilations. Everything here is just so nicely wrapped up and smooth.

RIP William Onyeabor.

Hidden gem... Would never have heard of this guy if I didn't start listening to Fela Kuti. I don't care that this is a comp - great funky sound throughout.

If you've got a turntable, it's well worth treating yourself to the vinyl version of this. If not you'll miss out on "When The Going Is Smooth and Good", which if you ask me is the best thing the great man ever did.
