Featuring an energetic mixture of Afrobeat, Afroboogie, funk and disco, this 1978 album from Nigeria (originally out on Foss Sound) now at last gets its deserved reissue. The Mighty Flames were a crack bunch of Cameroonian musicians, drawn to Nigeria by the heavy funk sounds booming across the border like musical moths. For a short time in the late seventies they owned Port Harcourt, destroying dancefloors with an incendiary sound that burned so heavily that it was phosphorescent.

Also available: METALIK FUNK BAND (CD).
