Product description

Focusing on the big band sound dominated by wailing saxophones, brass solos and relentless polyrhythmic grooves, Nigeria Afrobeat Special delivers a nononsense collection of tracks that bar one have NEVER been reissued outside of Nigeria. It was Fela Kuti and his musical and political ideals that formed the core of afrobeat's message. Fela's highly sought after version of 'Who're you' lends this set it's lead. The collection also features Fela's rival and fellow afrobeat veteran Orlando Julius, represented by the track 'Afro–Blues' – amazing that this has previously managed to escape reissue. The fourth in an indespensable series of CD LP compilations documenting the influence of western blues, rock and disco amongst artists and musicians versed in the local musical styles of highlife and juju.
