Item ID: 439425

By the mid 1970s in Nigeria, the Biafran War was a distant memory and the music scene in the eastern city of Aba was booming again. Bands such as The Funkees, The Wings and The Apostles grabbed the headlines, but the more interesting stuff was coming from smaller groups like the Friimen. The Friimen, or the Friimen Musik Company to use their official name, were influenced as much by pre-'Saturday Night Fever' Bee Gees as Jimi Hendrix and James Brown. Their album 'We Can Get it On' is a hybrid of West Coast ballads and dancefloor chuggers.

Also available: WE CAN GET IT ON (LP).

AHANOTU, ADOLF - SENSATION

AHANOTU, ADOLF - SENSATION

A reissue of a cool Nigerian album, originally released in 1986. 'Sensation' reeks of dance floor freakiness and from the freaked-out opening seconds of the title track you are left in no doubt: the doctor is in the house.
