And appearing at about the same time is this new volume in Soundway's Nigeria Special series:

"It was Fela Kuti and his musical and political ideals that formed the core of afrobeat’s message. Blending highlife, Yoruba music, funk and jazz, Fela dominated the musical tapestry of 1970’s Nigeria and his influence in Nigeria and West Africa led to a craze where most of the bands of the day incorporated this new sound into their repertoires to satisfy the tastes of the audiences of the time. This compilation highlights some of those recordings that have, until now, not seen the light of day."

The track Adebo comes from the LP "Son of January 15th". Not sure the label but date is circa 1970.

"Adebo" is taken from a 45 on Polydor Nigeria which is backed with "Poor Man No Get Brother"... brilliant tunes.
