Orlando Julius – Disco Highlife

Orlando_Julius_Disco_Highlife_Hot_Casa_Records_Tumble_Weave_TumbleweaveThere wasn’t much fanfare surrounding this release towards the end of last month. However if one re-issue deserves to be brought to attention it is Orlando Julius’ ‘Disco Highlife’.

Originally recorded with his ‘Modern Aces’ in 1976 the title track was re-issued as a 12″ in 2009. It’s only now that the rest of the LP has been made available to those without original copies, and this is thanks to the folks at Hot Casa Records. 

You can head over to a few outlets to grab your copy of the limited edition vinyl (with inserts and photo’s included). Be quick though, there are limited copies. If you’ve missed out, you’ll have to make do with the re-mastered version in the video below. This is a slice of original Nigerian magic that nobody should miss out on.
