The cover looks a bit cheesy – like some sort of Star Search graphic – but the album's a rock-solid gem from the second decade of Nigerian funk – recorded in Lagos with a great boogie vibe, and a groove that's as heavy on keyboards as it is on riffing guitar and percussion!

Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A great album of funky dancefloor tunes! Originally issued in 1978, and clearly for the New York dancefloor crowd – the record takes the earlier work of funk group The Blackbyrds, and remixes the tracks slightly to pump up the groove a bit for the dancers.

John BlairSouthern Love ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Wonderfully electric work from John Blair – a set that's a fair bit more fusion overall than his album for CTI – and which features some really great sounds from the "vitar"!

A wonderful early record from Bohannon – and with a very different feel than usual!
