It's hard to get a handle on Nigerian musicians Nash Dodoo, Charlie Cuul and Jonas Caulley. In 1980 they released an album of face-melting gospel boogie as the BML chapels. And in the same year, calling themselves the Beta Yama Group, they put out 'Free Love', a belated love letter to San Francisco's 'Summer Of Love' and an album altogether focused on more worldly concerns. 'Free Love' is a small slice of Haight-Ashbury transported to the Polygram Studios in Lagos. Insanely rare - and worth buying for the freaky cover art alone - 'Free Love' is a funky, reverb heavy call for love, peace and sweet, sweet loving.

Also available: FREE LOVE (CD).

CLETIN, BENIS - JUNGLE MAGIC

CLETIN, BENIS - JUNGLE MAGIC

Considered an acid boogie classic, 'Jungle Magic' is a cosmic transmission from the early days of Nigerian disco. The bass lines are lethal. The synths are fat and squelchy. And the groove is non-stop and primal. Channeling the jungle gods of funk and introducing them to ... read more »
