Analog Africa recently dropped word of the second installment of their compilation series, Afrobeat Airways 2: Return Flight to Ghana 1974-1983, set to release sometime in September. This soulful compilation boasts 13 rare "tropical sounds heavily influenced by highlife" from the likes of Ebo Taylor Jr. to K. Frimpong and more obscure artists.
