2008 release. In this specially priced collection you will find a wide variety of exciting African sounds created in Nigeria from the late 1950s up to the late 1980s. All the songs are taken from releases on Vampisoul's massive West Africa reissue project. On Afrobeat Nirvana music speaks for itself in its conflation of African tradition, jazz, highlife, psych, funk, soul, R&B and -- of course -- Afrobeat. Some of the names here are familiar to our occidental ears, such as the great Tony Allen, Orlando Julius, and of course Fela Kuti (here in his early years). But there are plenty of others, more obscure and mindblowing, such as Godwin Omobuwa, Dr.Victor Olaiya, Bola Johnson, Fred Fisher and Opotopo.
