LP version. Reissue of The Stormmers's Lovers Song, originally released in 1981. "The Stormmers were led by Renny Pearl, former bandleader and bass player with Aktion, an Afro funk band from Warri that burned brightly and briefly in the mid '70s. With the help of Jake Sollo, an ex-Funkee and recently reconstituted disco dandy, they created Lovers Song, an album of frantically musical bass lines, skittery hi-hats and an irresistible urge to get onto the dancefloor. 'Love Or Money' has the swagger of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. 'Super D. Jay' has the sure-footedness of a well-selected playlist. 'Sexy Woman', with its refrain of 'I need you, I want you, you turn me on, you're beautiful' is the sound of a clubber desperately trying to find someone, anyone, so they don't have to go home alone. The album was recorded in Nigeria and the UK and released in 1981, a time in Nigeria when oil prices were falling, beats-per-minute were rising and clubbers wanted to party like there was no tomorrow. The urgent, salacious sounds of The Stormmers suited the mood perfectly." -- Peter Moore.
