i'll kick this post off with some De Frank and His Professionals:

and because everyone loves compilations, especially when they're awesome:

Afro-Beat Airways: West African Shockwaves - Ghana & Togo 1972-1978 (2010)
"Consistent to the last, West African Shock Waves is another fine installment in a series that threatens to become as essential a glimpse into obscure and vintage African music as the Ethiopiques series – and that’s high praise indeed." -BBC
