Heaven sent from Nigeria's tumultuous east, The Apostles have been preaching a particular blend of funky psychedelic soul/rock fusion for over 40 years. On 1977's 'Banko Woman', here reissued on CD, the group threw a little Afrobeat into the mix, creating an Afro-funk disco bomb that has been energizing dance floors ever since.

Also available: BANKO WOMAN/FAITH, LUCK & MUSIC (7").
