2009 release. Victor Olaiya is certainly one of the legendary foundation stones of modern Nigerian music, yet he has never received much acknowledgement or really had his albums released or promoted in any quantity outside of Nigeria. So this Vampisoul release is a step in the right direction. Dr. Victor Abimbola Olaiya, the evil genius of highlife, is still sockin' it to them after 60 years on stage. If you're lucky you can catch him blowing that trumpet and singing his heart out at his own celebrated "Stadium Hotel" in Lagos, Nigeria. This album from 1970 is from Olaiya's highlife/funk phase, and it's worth taking a trawl through his back pages to see how he became the Evil Genius, before you roll back the rug and get down with the highlife-funk. Our carefully produced reissue comes with extensive liner notes by specialist Max Reindhart.
