✨✧ VariousNigeria Soul Power 70 – Afro Funk, Afro Rock, Afro Disco ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of lesser-known gems from the 70s scene in Nigeria – music that's a great counterpart to better-remembered Afro Funk and soul from international giants like Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade! This set digs deep, and is a nicelly expanded version of a set that Soul Jazz issued years back as a limited edition 7" single box for Record Store Day – presented here with more music, and a detailed set of notes – really getting at the special scene that was taking place in Nigeria at the time, as the nation was rising to the top of the African scene with a fantastic criss-crossing of musical modes! There's definitely plenty of the funk promised in the title, and the "rock" is usually of the funky kind with great guitar work – and a few later cuts even pick up the pace with a bit of disco, but more in the fast-funk mode, and hardly the slick stuff of the American scene. Titles include "Africans Must Unite" and "Shake Hands" by Geraldo Pino, "We'll Get Home" by The Wings, "E Ye Ika Se" by Alhagi Prof Kollington Ayinala, "Kassa Kpa Sama Kpa" by Colomach, "Beware" by MFB, "You Are The One" by Tony Grey & The Ozimba Messengers, "Single Boy" by The Wings, "Sugar Baby" by Don Bruce & The Angels", "Power To The People" by Geraldo Pino, "Igba Alusi" by Original Wings, "Dance Of The Elephants" by Sonny Okosunds Ozziddi, and "Oba Erediauwa I" by Sonny Okosuns.

✨✧ VariousShrine Afrobeat – The Funkiest Music Ever Made ... CD
Ocho (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky African – and dancefloor slammers, all of them! Max Reinhardt and the crew at Shrine compiled this set of 12 tasty groovers – and the set has a real London crossover dancefloor sound, with a mix of tracks along the same theme, but pushing the envelope of styles in the way that's had London leading the scene for years. The set's actually pretty nicely put together – and like the other titles on Ocho, it includes material of slightly more recent vintage, great stuff that we might have passed over due to our own snobbery for classic tunes. Titles include "Synchro System" by King Sunny Ade, "Fefe Naa Efe" by Fela, "Yegelle Tezeta" by Mulatu, "Watchi Wara" by Bantous Jazz, "Xihlaula Mane" by Kapa Dech, "NEPA – dub mix" by Tony Allen, "Yaba Funk" by Captain Yabaa, "Take Am So" by Gyedu Blay Ambulley, and "Funky Hi-Life" by CK Mann & Carousel 7.
