The Nairobi Beat (Kenyan Pop Music Today) [Rounder, 1989]
Again and again, tintinnabulating guitar lines lift this carefully annotated compilation of 10 dance-length indie singles. When the vocals are something special--a couple of so-called sister acts and the trailing harmonies of two guys who don't want to mind the baby--the lift is all the way to heaven. When they aren't it clears the treetops.
