How Do You Feel (180 gram pressing)

LP (Item 981383) Polydor (Nigeria), 1978 — Condition: Sealed

The fourth and final album from Ofege – and a set that shows the Nigerian group still very much at the top of their game – soaring out on fast funk rhythms that often echo American styles of the time, but with a lot more edge – and produced with all these cool trippy touches around the edges, which serve to fold together the musical elements in a really unique way! The vibe is different than both the larger Afro Funk combos of the period, and some of the crossover disco/boogie that was beginning to come into the mix – very standout, very unique work that really sets the group apart from the rest. Titles include "Burning Jungle", "World In Peace", "How Do You Feel", "Nature Queen", "Naira Power", "Take Your Mind Away", "Check It Out", and "Frustration".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Fiesta/Ascensionale (Italy), 1975. Near Mint-
Maybe the funkiest album ever from Marius Cultier – and definitely one of the records that perfectly shows off his wonderful post-colonial blend of sounds!

Miriam Makeba In Concert
Reprise, Late 60s. Sealed
A pretty great set – a bit folksier than most of Makeba's other work for Reprise, but recorded with a pretty lively groove on many numbers, a lot more interesting than some of Makeba's early work in the folk vein. The record includes a seven minute version of "A Piece Of Ground", a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pacific Jazz, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Very very very groovy stuff by this masterful jazz vibist, recorded with a sort of late 60s swingin' feel – but still very much in the pocket and warm as a summer breeze! Lytle has a pretty remarkable way of playing the vibes with speed and energy, yet the overall feel still has kind of a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barry White's got plenty to give here – a massive classic from his legendary early 70s years – and the first record to feature the maestro on his own as a lead act!
