Album

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. Clerets 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. 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. Released: 2010 Label: Soundway Records UK 01. Fela & The Africa 70 Whore you Original 45 Version 02. While Fela Kuti is the undisputed father of Afrobeat, the many other recordings on this 11-track release showcase many interpretations of his creation. Most of these sides were issued by Universal Music Group-owned labels: Philips, Decca, Polydor, etc. A few come from EMI and HMV as well. Still others were on African-owned independents such as Tabansi and Ashiko. The array of artists here is also remarkable. Nigeria Afrobeat Special kicks off with an actual Fela Ransome Kuti & His Africa 70 recording: The single version of Who're You, from 1971. It's an extraordinary record- as promised, it's a harder, brasher take than the more familiar one from Fela's London Scene, a crazily taut, rubbery rhythm whose lyric is Fela snapping back against old-timers who didn't get his new thing. It's also the best thing on Afrobeat Special by a significant margin- tight, cleverly constructed, and rhythmically on-point in the way that not much else here is. Nigeria Disco Funk Special Various Artists. Poor Man Get No Brother Segun Bucknor. Artist Played By. He was an exhilarating performer, and its only to be expected that Fela and his Afrika 70 band provide the rousing opening of an album dedicated to The New Explosive Sound in 1970s Nigeria. The track is called Whore You, a song that Fela released as a 7 45 rpm single in 1971, and was later re-recorded at Abbey Road for his album Felas London Scene. This original version has not been re-released until now, and its a classic example of early Fela, mixing a driving funk rhythm with fine brass work, chanting vocals and playful improvised keyboard solos. Nigeria Afrobeat Special: The New Explosive Sound in 1970s Nigeria. VARIOUS ARTISTS. 4 out of 5 stars 4. Nigeria Special is the most ambitious project yet for the label - a truly in-depth, double album look at Nigerian music in the early to mid-'70s, encompassing a broad range of styles. Compiler and DJ Miles Cleret has spent five years working on this album - involving trips to Lagos and around Nigeria interviewing musicians and researching recordings, as well as a suitable amount of time scouring dusty record stores and warehouses for elusive sounds. You are entering the danger zone of Nigerian Afrobeat, mined during the 70's but still retaining its groovy rawness. Or consider a donation More Albums. View All. Black Panther: The Album.
