My buddy Saul bought me this album recently. Its definitely one to check out. Here is the blurb from Amazon:
"Nigeria Disco Funk Special is an amazing collection of heavy dancefloor grooves from urban Lagos in the `70s - hot and driving slices of Funk, Disco and Boogie that show just how vibrant the music scene was in one of West Africa's most populous and culturally diverse cities. In the `70s, it wasn't just James Brown who influenced the musicians playing in the nightspots of Lagos - the loose-structured and elongated jams that he was pioneering in America had been a part of Nigerian music much longer than that. This album is the sound of Cuban-heeled and Micro-minied Lagos youth soaking up the sound of the American discotheque and putting their own inimitable twist on the proceedings."
