Overview

Release Date:08/19/2016;Notes:Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing of this album by Nigeria's #1 producer of the 1970s and early '80s, 'Sound President' Odion Iruoje. Originally produced on his own label Odion Ltd and released in 1983, this over-looked and obscure LP was originally only ever distributed in small numbers back in the early 1980s. Iruoje is credited as being the man who signed Fela Kuti to EMI Nigeria and produced all of Fela's revolutionary early material from 1970-73. His first job upon being taken on by EMI Nigeria in 1969 was to be sent to London on a work experience placement at their London studios in St. Johns Wood. When he arrived he was pitched straight in at the deep-end, finding The Beatles deep in the recording of their Abbey Road album. He also signed and produced most of the great body of Nigerian material on the EMI label including BLO, Mono-Mono, Tunji Oyelana (who adds vocals on this LP), Ofege, Geraldo Pino, Sonny Okosuns and many many more. Part disco, part Nigerian rap, Afro-funk and Juju, it's a unique and at times eccentric blend of Nigerian music that certainly deserves another look after all these years. Featuring a handpicked squad of some of Iruoje's favorite musicians and session players.;Track List:1. Identify with Your Root (Which One You De?);2. Anogo - Giri;3. Ikebe;4. Alhaja and Obiageri;5. Love Care;6. Are Affair (Crazy Scene);Special Attributes:LIMITED EDITION, 180 GRAM VINYL
