Nigeria 70 Sweet Times
'Afro-Funk, Highlife and Juju from 1970s Lagos.'



Nigeria Afrobeat Special The New Explosive Sound In 1970s Nigeria
Blistering Fela-inspired Afro-funk, as if in cahoots with the recent Now Again haymaker Lagos micro to its cross-continental macro, a double whammy and a half. The vinyl set has no less than five exclusives.



The Nkengas Destruction
Raw, funky, sweet Afro-beat, Afro-rock and highlife originally issued by Orbitone in 1973. The Nkengas became well-known as the Ikenga Super Stars Of Africa. (We included them on Lagos Chop Up.)



Ray Stephen Oche Interpretation Of The Original Rhythm
Killer, rootsy, grooving Afro Jazz. The Nigerian trumpeter Guy Warren protege joined on this 1970 Paris recording by musicians from the Congo, Togo, Guinea, Gambia, Brazil and the West Indies. Ace!



Ray Stephen Oche No Discrimination
Jubilant, fiery, visionary Afro-jazz and funk. His second, mid-seventies LP.



Ogassa Ogassa Original
Killer, limber funk from Porto Novo, in the east of Benin. The sextet had a bunch of radio hits in the mid-70s, and collaborated with the Orchestre Poly- Rythmo de Cotonou. Organ-led, moody. 'Oga', master.



Funsho Ogundipe The Afrobeat Chronicles Vol. 1
The 2002 5-tracker that made us sit up to Funsho's 'jazz side of afrobeat'.



Funsho Ogundipe The Afrobeat Chronicles Vol. 2
Warm, relaxed, West London afro-jazz from our friend Funsho and his friends.




William Onyeabor Who Is William Onyeabor?
Epic Nigerian disco-funk with intricate percussion breaks, bleepy synths, politics, Krautrock, cheese, oddity, wonder. Hotly recommended.




Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou Echos Hypnotiques, 1969 - 1979
Much better sound than the first volume, and presented in the fine style of this label, with a 44-page booklet full of great photos, low-down and interviews.




Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou
The first album, straight no chaser, from 1973 superlative Beninese Afrobeat.



Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou The Skeletal Essences Of Afro Funk 1969-1980
A staggering third helping of raw Benin funk. Check YouTube for a totally knockout film of the band performing the second track, Houzou Houzou Wa.
