This track is from "World Psychedelic Classics 3: Love's a Real Thing, the Funky Fuzzy Sounds of West Africa," a stunning compilation of songs from West Africa's pop music scene in the late '60s and '70s -- a fascinating and explosive mash-up of funk and soul and psychedelic rock. Over a smooth but propulsive organ and bass funk groove, Moussa Doumbia alternates spot-on James Brown yelps and hollers with a fleet and unmistakably African melody.
