Afrosonique Vol 1
LP (Item 119813) Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/2017 — Condition: Sealed
This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap.
We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't
look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time,
we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape —
which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be
torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played,
the record will still qualify as "Sealed".
Additional Marks & Notes
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially
if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record.
This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

SE Rogie's a hell of a guitarist – a real standout even in the legendary African scene of the 60s – and he's also kind of a one-man combo, adding in some rhythms and vocals along with his lines on the electric guitar!

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.

Really wonderful stuff – and a record that may well be even better than the previous flamenco jazz albums cut by Paco DeLucia and Petro Iturralde in Spain!
