Akin Richards & The Executives. Nigeria Soul Fever (Afro Funk, Disco And Boogie: West African Disco Mayhem!) (3xLP, Comp).
Packed-full with Afro-Funk, Disco and Boogie all from Nigeria, this triple album/double CD set brings together a stunning collection of diverse West African sounds. Whilst a small handful of the artists featured (Joni Haastrup, Tee Mac, Christy Essien) have seen the light of day outside Africa, this is essentially a collection of killer tracks by an array of artists completely unknown outside of Nigeria. Artists such as Don Bruce & The Angels, Akin Richards & The Executives, Angela Starr, Jimmy Sherry & The Music Agents. This album follows on from Soul Jazz Records’ 1960s collection Nigeria Freedom Sounds, released last month, and will be followed by the reissue of the incredibly rare and groovy Nigerian 1980 disco boogie funk album Tee Mac’s Night Illusion.
Benis Cletin - "Soul Fever" (5:02). 3. Arakatula - "Wake Up Africa" (3:19). The range is mesmerizing; the sinewy synth and playground vocal Q&A of Benis Cletin's "Get Up & Dance", the ballroom disco soul of Tee Mac's "Living Everyday", the soulful afrofunk folk of Jimmy Sherry's "Nwaeze", the gut-punching power of Arakatula's album finale "Wake Up Africa". This is a treasure trove of unreleased gems that capture a truly unique time.
An undeniably uplifting compilation from the kind people at Soul Jazz! This time turning their heads to the 70s disco scene of West Africa, legends such as Christy Essien and Benis Cletin appear side by side with obscurities like Colomach. Warm, hypnotic guitar lines and steady rhythms glide across sixteen beautiful tracks. All recorded at a time when foreign imports were banned from entering Nigeria!
