Various Artists - Nigeria Afrobeat Special: The New Explosive Sound in 1970's Nigeria

Nigeria Afrobeat Special is the fourth addition to the Nigeria Special series, a project initiated by Miles Cleret, owner of the Soundway Record label back in 2004. Cleret’s ambition to distinguish the blossoming music scenes of 1970s Nigeria has lent to an indispensable series of CD and 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.

Reviews

“gloriously roudy” ***** The Telegraph

“the most uplifting album in the world…. The highlight for me is a jam which takes its trumpets out after dark: 'Afro-Blues' is a twinkling moonlit boogie, which any fan of Fools Gold will find irresistible.”
***** Artrocker
