It would be fair to say that Sir Waziri Oshoma is not one of Nigeria's better-known musicians, despite having a high reputation amongst collectors. Throughout the 1970s and early '80s, he recorded and released a number of albums - each packed with his distinctive interpretations of the then dominant Afrobeat and Highlife sounds - with the backing of his Africa 70 style house band, the Traditional Sound Makers. Volume 3 initially appeared on the band leader's own label back in 1980, and here gets the reissue treatment thanks to the folks behind Paris record store turned label Superfly. Its' four lengthy workouts are naturally superb, making it one of those hard-to-find gems that should be in any Afrobeat enthusiast's collection.
