Somewhat surprisingly, Nigeria Soul Fever is apparently Soul Jazz Records' first attempt to document the vibrant West African disco, Afro-funk and boogie scene of the 1970s. As usual, they've done a bang-up job. Noted crate-digging journalist Bill Brewster provides detailed sleeve notes, while the two-disc selection is largely made up of blistering cuts from artists who will be unfamiliar to all but the most studied Afro-disco diggers. The selections from Don Bruce & The Angels, Akin Richards & The Executives and Angela Starr, in particular, are little less than essential, as the continued high prices of their original 12" single releases neatly proves. If you're after a West African disco primer, look no further.
