Review

** Repress of 2008 Soundway classic! ** Since 2002, Soundway Records has been synonymous with high-quality and ground-breaking compilations of music from Africa, the Caribbean and South America. 'Nigeria Special' is the most ambitious project yet for the label - a truly in-depth, double album look at Nigerian music in the early to mid-70s, encompassing a broad range of styles. Compiler and DJ Miles Cleret has spent five years working on this album - involving trips to Lagos and around Nigeria interviewing musicians and researching recordings, as well as a suitable amount of time scouring dusty record stores and warehouses for the elusive sounds on this album. This compilation presents some of the best un-reissued and forgotten sounds from Nigeria, covering the amazingly vibrant and diverse styles that emerged and flourished at the time. Everything from Highlife, Jazz, Afro Beat and Blues to more traditional styles are represented to give as comprehensive a survey of the scene as possible.
