Which Way Nigeria?

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 32

Nice uptempo modern afro funk by Sonny Okosuns from the mid 80s. 4 stretched out grooves, with less of the syncopated approach or raw funk of Fela, but still with a great post disco feel that never loses its distinctly Nigerian vibe. Pulsing interwoven guitar lines keep the tracks moving along nicely under bright horn stabs, and there's one reggae number included too: "African Woman", "Which Way Nigeria?", "Tell My People" and "My Ancestors". (Cover has a cut corner and a few creases.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Afro-soul from Tala – a set that has a nice range of modes, all of them pretty groovy! The title track is a stunning slow soul number – definitely inspired by James Brown's "It's A Man's World" – but some other tracks sparkle with a bit more boogie too – a key ... LP, Vinyl record album

The record's a culmination of the rich, full style of soulful arranging that Hayes had pioneered in his early solo ... LP, Vinyl record album
