Nigeria Special :: Nigerian Blues 1970-76


As our good friend, and fellow afro-beat enthusiast, Gorilla vs Bear, mentioned last week, Soundway Records has just released the compilation Nigeria Special featuring funk, r&b, afrobeat, soul, highlife, psych, and other subgenres from the region. I have many a collection from this era and region, and, so far, this comp is hanging with with the best of them.

Elsewhere: Jeff Weiss currently has a Fela Kuti MP3 primer up on his site. It’s a great intro to the late Kuti’s incredibly vast catalog.

  1. I’m reading Fela’s bio right now. Insane life, man. Also picked up Ghana Soundz recently – another great collection.
