Harry Mosco's 'Country Boy' is a certified floor-filler, bursting with Studio 54-era disco-funk as well as a token reggae monster, complete with its own dub version. Harry Mosco always had swagger. A founding member of London-based Nigerian unit The Funkees, he'd stride out on stage in tight pants and dark sunglasses, commanding the attention of a population distracted by war. When The Funkees split in London, it was clear that his star would rise the fastest. Released in 1978 by the Taretone label, 'Country Boy' went on to become one of the best-selling Nigerian records of all time.

Also available: COUNTRY BOY (CD).
