Amazing Afro-beat album from a Fela Anikulapo Kuti disciple.
A sublime spiritual & political session recorded at Phonogram studio ( Lagos, Nigeria) in 1979, on a 16 tracks .
After the critically acclaimed second album we're very proud to present the first and really hard to find vinyl reissue of Kingsley Bucknor. Also know as "King Bucknor" the famous nigerian producer , arranger and singer delivered two brilliant, hypnotic and long traditional afro-beat tracks .All the ingredients of the «afro-beat» definition are here , killer drums, straight riff guitars , hypnotic bass , heavy horns chorus, strong political lyrics with beautiful melodies. Ultra Rare, unique, Essential !
Fully licensed with King Bucknor himself.
Remastered by The Carvery ( UK) .
An exciting, hypnotic and classy mix of William Onyeabor and Fela Kuti. Keyboards drive side A but the terrific ‘Simigwa Soca’ the brings in side B reveals the drums and highlife horns taking over to accompany this man’s amazing baritone vocals. Funky Ghana! Tim Mee
