Great Label: Soundway Records

They’re not exactly glutting the marketplace with releases, but the titles they do put out are uniformly excellent. This year Soundway Records have delivered a solid one-two punch with Nigeria Special and Nigeria Disco Funk Special. The quality of the tracks (African funk from the 70s that shows both a strong American influence and a deep originality) from start to finish on both sets is astonishing. The great (and obscure) music would easily stand on its own, but has been generously augmented with meticulous liner notes and fantastic photos. Kudos.
