the nigeria 70 compilations are killer and worth hunting down

Agreed. The Ghana Special off Soundwave Records is killer as well.
I've been on a huge Afrobeat/Highlife kick lately, mostly 60's/70's music from Ghana and Nigeria. Here are my favorites.

 



here's my favorite release from ghana, crazy drum fills on right channel for sampling:




this album from SENEGAL is also a must but it doesn't sound very traditional:

Pretty much every cumbia/chicha band circa 70s and 80s...
Make sure you check juaneco y su combo, los shapis, los orientales de paramonga, los mirlos, los wemblers, most of them I found though the roots of chicha compilations...
One of my favorite albums is actually a compilation from a label called masstropica, from an american dude who fell in love with peruvian music. it's called el sonido de la carretera central. Another one I really like is tu y yo by los sanders de nana... :^)
