Album Remarks & Appraisals:
The story of the development of popular throughout Africa in the wake of independence for the former European colonial states is a fascinating one. Kenyan-born Slim Ali & The Hodi Boys played African-continental soul and pop from during the late 1970s, music in the spirit of soul and funk of Memphis, TN and the American South. This '70s Pop' CD, like the '70s Soul' album (EUCD2517) released in 2014, is a mixture of Slim Ali's three albums. This long awaited CD re-release of Afro Pop at its best includes 'You Can Do It' and the majority of his first, No. 1 album.
