Lovely deep Afrobeat from Ghana's 70s Highlife period. First side is funkier and has been comp'd a few times but the second side is much softer; after several listens it really grabbed me. The record is a bit rough but there are no skips.

When it rains it pours! In the recent spirit of mass collections of mp3s, here's a kind soul who has made nearly the entire Roy Ayers discography available through rapid share. Roy Ayers is a player who has gone from straight ahead jazz to sunshine funk and disco. My favorite album by him is Starbooty, one of the weirdest, funkiest 70s disco jams and a highly overlooked record. Snag it!
