The Funkees: Dancing Time
Buy! - (Soundway)
This Nigerian group’s music was a fiery, hard-hitting blend of Afro-Beat and rock, with a raw, gritty sound combining funky rhythms, searing electric guitars and organ, traditional African percussion and strong lead vocals and harmonies. This excellent compilation of 18 songs from 1973-77 collects their early Nigerian singles along with selections from the two albums they recorded after relocating to London. 5/17/2012 - Don Yates
