Insanely high quality release. Sounds incredible, the print of the jacket is brilliant and the booklet is a nicely presented extra addition, as is the bonus 7".

Ignore the people who don't want 'singing with accents' on a Nigerian compilation album - this is worth absolutely every penny!


22. April 2020
Definitely worth your money, very high resolution printing with the original covers on the gatefold, very cool design and some history included. Definitely worth the $28.

Who doesn't like this super compilation has probably bad taste or can't dance it in a cool way hehe
Lot of masterpiece in here, first of all the "only you" from "Steve monite" !

Not sure what the fascination with Nigerian funk is. I bought this comp. Most of these sound like ultra low-budget productions, and the vocals are pretty horrendous.

The only decent tracks on here are the instrumentals in my opinion. At least we are not bombarded with mediocre singing with heavy accents.

This one is so darned FUNKY even my very racist second cousin Terrance couldn't resist a cheeky little boogie when I put it on the turntable!!!


14. April 2018
does anyone know who did the audio restoration job for this compilation?


26. Januar 2018
To be honest, after all the compilations from 70-80’s african music that have been issued in the last years, my expectations weren’t so high. This one is a great compilation with quite a few gems. I marked 8 tracks that will fall into my afrobeat sessions. Very good job.

Killer comp... ORE MI is the standout for me - huge!!

How come 'Identify with your Root' is not on the LP comp? Got the download and it had it in...
