Put your dancing shoes and be ready to kill the dancefloor, the intoxicating highlife music known as Edo Funk from
Benin City, Nigeria is back. Following the planetary success of Analog Africa's 'Edo Funk Explosion Vol. 1' project they have now unearthed 'No Food Without Taste If By Hunger' by The Good Samaritans, one of the most obscure Nigerian album ever recorded. Originally released in 1982, the band's first album is full of bouncy basslines, raw trance-like grooves and tripped-out psychedelic guitars, a funk experience unlike any other. The Good Samaritans is Philosopher Okundaye's own Edo Funk project, under which name he produced four albums, all recorded at Phonodisk Studio in Ijebu-Igbo, east of Lagos with a 24 track. Okundaye, who played many instruments, engaged the right musicians for each project and mixed the whole thing himself, is known as the composer of a large part of Benin City's celebrated hits in the '80s. His name keeps popping up but somehow his role in the scene remains a bit hazy, giving the character an image of something like the gray eminence of Edo Funk. 'No Food Without Taste If By Hunger' comes as a limited edition LP with a silk-screen printed cover on 180gr orange vinyl pressed. The download from Bandcamp also includes
unlimited streaming of 'No Food Without Taste If By Hunger'
via the free Bandcamp app along with high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
