A vintage slice of extremely rare Nigerian electro-boogie, originally released in 1982 by Nkono Teles and digitally remastered here for the first time. Throughout the 1980s, the name "Nkono Teles" (or sometimes "Nkono Telex") was a regular feature in the credits of records by an array of Nigerian artists ranging from new wave funk and boogie acts like Dizzy K, Falola, Mandy Brown Ojugbana and Jombo, to reggae upstarts like Majek Fashek and Ras Kimono, to respected old hands like King Sunny Ade and Fela. Jombo's Pure Pleasure is one of the sleeper LPs from Nigeria that criminally fell by the wayside, but has now been restored to its former glory. Includes a new booklet with updated information and pictures.
