Triple Album - New - Black Vinyl

Genre: African

This definitive reissue features the original LP remastered and pressed on 180 gram triple vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. Originally released riding a wave of global interest in afrobeat at the turn of the decade, Strut's original Nigeria 70 set broke the mould for African compilations when it first surfaced in September 2001. Digging deep into Nigeria's archives, the collection showcased for the first time the stunning variety of fusions recorded across the country during the '70s, from national icons like Fela Kuti and Sunny Ade to lesser known young bands like Monomono and Ofo the Black Company. Nigeria 70 paved the way for the many fine labels like Soundway and Analog Africa who have since continued to document the detailed story of rare West African music and it has remained heavily in-demand since it was deleted in 2003. It features Fela Ransome Kuti and the Africa 70, Sir Victor Uwaifo and his Melody Maestroes, Monomono, Lijadu Sisters, Afro Cult Foundation, the Funkees, Ofo the Black Company etc.
