A fantastic batch of Nigerian funk from the great Orlando Julius – some of the most dynamic Afrobeat recordings ever made! These recordings document Orlando's years with his band the Afro Sounders, which evolved from his earlier band the Modern Aces in the mid 60s, and following his titanic 1966 classic Super Afro Soul. As was the case with that amazing album, Orlando blends the deeply percussive African rhythms with a tightness and a hard wallop learned from American soul and R&B – with some very proud, righteous odes to the spirit of the Nigerian people. The set features the amazing cut "James Brown Ride On", which not only serves as a great Nigerian tribute to the American godfather (complete with English lyrics) but it also does a wonderful job of highlighting the cross-cultural elements that make Afrofunk the force that it was, and still is! Amazing, essential stuff – some of the tightest Afrobeat you'll ever hear, and a joy to see so lovingly reissued! Other tracks include "Home Sweet Home", "Psychedelic Afro Shop", "Mura Sise", "Esamei Sate", "Alo Mi Alo", "Ketekete Koro", "New Apala Afro" and more!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

EMI/QDK (Germany), 1977. Used
A wickedly tripped-out set – and one that mixes up equal parts Afro Funk and psyche – very much in the spirit of Blo, who were contemporaries of Tirogo! The set has a great second-chapter, Afro 70s sort of feel – all the complicated rhythms that were emerging in the earlier part ... CD
