Description

Luaka Bop pressing of their CD version - previously pressed on vinyl by Stones Throw, but without the Manu Dibango and Gasper Lawal tracks. Check!

The twelve tracks on the record explore West Africa's groove-heavy assimilation of the psychedelic revolution, albeit a few years (and a couple thousand miles) removed from 1967's Summer of Love.

Spanning countries such as Mali, Gambia, Benin, Nigeria, Ghana, and Cameroon, this collection spotlights a time of incredible creative fermentation, reflecting on colonialism's more fortunate byproduct: the fascinating and unique intersection of hallucinogenic, distorted Western psychedelia and local, traditional African music. This phenomenon of Afro-Rock is what lies at the heart of Love's A Real Thing. This was one of the first compilations of Afro Funk and helped introduce William Onyeabor's music to the world. Luaka Bop's celebrated World Psychedelic Classics series began in 2000 with Volume 1: Brazil, a compilation of the inimitable genremelding Brazilian band Os Mutantes, entitled Everything Is Possible! Volume 2: California Soul , released in 2001 as the third solo record from multi-instrumentalist Shuggie Otis (Inspiration Information), successfully reintroduced Shuggie to the world at large. Volume 4; Tim Maia: Existential Soul and Volume 5: Who Is William Onyeabor.
