Un-Amazed –> Africa: Love is a Real Thing + Danny Elfman

First, Luaka Bop’s new comp has been out for awhile now. There’s so many of these African comps I was really hoping Luaka’s take would be excellent but it pars not to Antille’s 1984 comp of African-rock or really any of numerous comps. And for that matter why do all of Luaka Bop’s comp rely on the concept of american musical forms are adapted by foriengs? Brazilian-rock, African-pysch, Zap-Mama, etc? There has to be a new musical form invented by another country were over looking (count for u.s.: rap, techno, blues, jazz, country, soul, funk, & rock) for jamica dub, reggae, dancehall middle east: lot’s of stuff, africa: high-life, but with the exeption of Jamacia’s exports (expediated through the u.s. by enterprising jamacins in new york) most of these musical forms never really hit the u.s. I’d kill for a good comp of something I wasn’t expecting. The video though is great.

Oh yeah and just for a day has an interesting mini-bio of Danny Elfman surprisingly his first solo album has a few Calling out of context like moments.
