One of the most innovative and pioneering musicians of his time, Orlando Julius made an amazing difference to the Nigerian music between the sixties and the seventies. Our double CD pack includes "SUPER AFRO SOUL" with Orlando Julius & his Modern Aces, and "ORLANDO’S AFRO IDEAS 1969-72" by Orlando Julius & his Afro Sounders. A mind blowing mix of nigerian highlife style with jazz, soul, and funk.

No...this is one of those situations where you take the cash out of your pocket and support the label and artist.

interesting... the Orlando Julius material was previously reissued by Strut and Soundway, wasn't it?

I think both the orlando julius and tony allen was prviously reissued on strut. Though I appreciate their availability again, i wish that they would have reissued material that hadn't been reissued somewhat recently
