KILLER Nigerian funk/disco set from 1976 that takes its cue from what was happening Stateside while also remaining firmly African, the JB influences are strong but the feel is of a hot and sticky Lagos mid-70s nightclub with that tight, live jam feel. The uptempo ‘Tambourine Party’ is driven by a heavy bongo beat and interspersed with chatter from the band and their friends, the aptly titled ‘Afro Funk’ is a less pacey, hypnotic groove while the deep, infectious ‘X-Ray Guy’ is more obviously Nigerian in feel but still remains deeply funky, ‘Get Up And Do It Good’ is scored by some razor sharp horns and has a Kool & The Gang touch while the group offer a soulful edge on the sweet ‘How Much I Love You’. ‘Price Of Fame’ sees them bringing in Island elements while ‘Ejole’ has that voodoo funk vibe. ‘Tribute To Murtala Mohammed’ drives on with bubbling percussion and a galloping bassline. Superb, essential stuff!
