Melbourne's Left Ear Records present a reissue of Nigeria's Kingsley Bucknor's Just U And Me, originally released on Kinglsley's own KAB Records in 1985. After cutting his teeth playing with Fela in the '70s and releasing two Afrobeat LPs, Kingsley traveled the globe before finding himself in London. In London he laid down six distinctive electro-funk tunes inspired by African rhythms and music he'd heard through his travels in the States and in Europe. According to Kingsley, the release was well-received at the time, but due to constraints on international marketing, the record remained mostly unknown outside of his homeland. Fast-forward to 2017 and the stage is set for a new global audience to appreciate the distinct sound of Bucknor.
