LP version. The Martin Brothers are pioneers of the Nigerian funk and Afrobeat scene. Besides many releases under their own name, as the Tabansi studio band, they lit up innumerable recording sessions -- it's them on Pax Nicholas' Na Teef album, for example; and the same team is behind the legendary Saxon Lee & The Shadows International LP. Money is the Martins at their deepest and heaviest -- tearing, wailing, mid-'70s funk, heady with spirituality. Super-bad from start to finish, with no let-up. Original copies are amongst the most sought-after of all African and funk records on the international collectors' scene. It seems there is just a tiny handful of copies at large. The tracks were originally laid down at Ginger Baker's ARC recording studio in Lagos and later mixed down at London's Tin Pan Alley Studio. The audio restoration and remastering for this reissue was done at Abbey Road Studios.
