Nigeria 70 – Sweet Times

10th May sees the latest release in the ‘Nigeria 70′ series on (what is quickly becoming my new
favourite label) Strut Records. ‘Nigeria 70 – Sweet Times’ promises to be filled with ‘Afro Funk, Highlife and Juju from 1970’s Lagos’. If those words, along with the preview below are anything to go by, mine is on pre-order as of last week.

Another snippet worth knowing is that the compilation (along with previous releases on Strut) has been compiled by Duncan Brooker. You can read more about Duncan Brooker here, with the following extract providing a nice summary. 
”Record-collecting obsessive Duncan Brooker spent seven years trawling Africa for rare 60s and 70s funk in an attempt to preserve it for posterity. He didn’t know he’d also end up trying to save the musicians who created it”
Nigeria 70 – Sweet Times is out 10th May on Strut Records.
