Nemi/Livingston (Nigeria), 1979. New Copy ... $19.99
A Nigerian soul classic from Gboyega Adelaja – an artist who spent a fair bit of time on the US scene in the mid 70s, where he clearly drank from the deep well of funk and soul! The album's got a vibe that's maybe a bit tighter and groovier than some of Adelaja's contemporaries – maybe ... read more CD

A beautiful record from Akofa Akoussah – a singer from Togo who's equally gifted in funky and sweeter soul styles!

A really well-crafted set of funk from the legendary Gyedu-Blay Ambolley – maybe best known for his material in the mid 70s, but sounding equally wonderful here on an album from the start of the 80s!
