Product Description

It was the sound of post-independence Nigeria, a time of celebration and wealth but, ultimately, of political oppression. The music reflected the times - a heady mix of traditional rhythms and big band highlife with the new rock, soul and jazz sounds crackling through transistor radios from Europe and the U.S. The rulebook of Nigerian musical heritage was ripped up as SANTANA, THE BEATLES and JAMES BROWN became as relevant to young players as HARUNA ISHOLA, VICTOR OLAIYA and E. T. MENSAH. Led by the towering influence of FELA KUTI, established Nigerian stars and the rawest of college bands alike forged new fusions and began using their music confidently as a vehicle for new variations of traditional parables and social commentary. Back in 2001, the first edition of 'Nigeria 70' on STRUT broke the mould for African compilations, a 3CD powerhouse featuring a wide spectrum of musical styles from across the 1970s and an audio documentary tracing the music's history. For 2007, Strut delve deeper into the Lagos underground for another essential box of West African dynamite. Compiled by leading Afro archivist DUNCAN BROOKER and Strut's QUINTON SCOTT, 'Nigeria 70' comes packaged in a deluxe digipak with 16pg booklet featuring extensive sleeve notes by author JOHN COLLINS.

Review

Less somberly political than Fela's Afrobeat and sometimes almost unhinged, this music must have kept the clubs jumping. -- New-York Times

The kind of awesomely heady, rhythmic shakedown that you would want to jam to for independance. -- Fader
