ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nigeria 1970. Highlife, afro-beat, rock, jazz & native blues rub shoulders and are turned out at an unprecedented level. New styles meet old. Newly found national confidence follows the near break up of the nation following the Biafran war. New fashions meet old, forging new fusions. Soundway presents 26 original and previously un-reissued tracks from the time. Obscure a-sides, b-sides & album cuts that have resisted a second look until now.

Great package - the usual brilliant Soundway artwork, with an extremely informative and interesting booklet detailing each artist and track's history.
