I have just treated myself to an 18-track album called, Wake Up You! Vol 1: The Rise & Fall Of Nigerian Rock 1972-1977 and I can’t wait for this to brighten my letterbox! After Monday’s trip into the world of 70’s Nigerian rock, I went further on this journey and continued to track down and listen to lots more of this great music!
On my travels I stumbled across this album which was released by the Los Angeles label Now-Again Records last year.
Packed full of funk, rock and psychedelia from 1970’s Nigeria, there are two volumes to these albums (the second I will be getting soon!), both of which are presented and reissued by Now Again Records as a tribute to the many bands that formed this relatively unknown (and nearly forgotten) Nigerian psych circle.
Featuring on Volume 1 comes this instantly addictive and very funky song by Ify Jerry Krusade titled, Everybody Likes Something Good. Get down and check it out above…
I can recommend this album if you enjoyed today’s and Monday’s song, just click on the Now-Again Records link above for more details!
