Repeating Problem


Some people keep walking against this from time to time.
If the numbers you fill in to download keep coming back,
do not despair. If you try again on a later moment, it
will probably work as meant. We can’t seem to find out
why this occurs, it just does. Hang on, stay tuned and
eventually your patience will be rewarded ..


Alhaji Waziri Oshomah and his Traditional
Sound Organisation – Agbo “Knock Out 86”
Shanu Olu Records 1985

When most people think about the music of Nigeria, the first thing that comes
to mind is probably afrobeat, the darkly funky African jazz stew popularized by
bandleader Fela Kuti, himself a Yoruba from the southwestern region of the country.
Or perhaps they might mention other Yoruba musicians such as King Sunny Ade
and Ebenezer Obey, the twin pillars of the southwestern juju style. Maybe their
thoughts would glide more towards the eastern extreme of the country, where Igbo
highlife stars such as Stephen Osita Osadebe, the Oriental Brothers and Oliver de Coque
have made a mark upon the arena. More imaginative thinkers might look
northwards to cite Hausa and Fulani griots like Dan Maraya Jos, Alhaji Mamman
Shata and Alhaji Musa Dankwairo. It is rare though, that the spotlight is leveled
towards the mid-western region of the region of the country, the territory encom-
passing the modern-day Nigerian states of Edo and Delta. Edo in particular boasts
of a wealth of musical traditions that is both deep and broad, yet shamefully under-
explored; and among this assortment of musical traditions, one of the richest is the
music of the Afemai, or Etsako people. And in the field of Afemai music, the
undefeated champ is Alhaji Waziri Oshomah. (read more at Superfly Records)

A.B. Crentsil and the Super Sweet Talks Int.
Mewo Road
Ambassador 1982 ?

click on it

We already had some records with A.B. Crentsil, personally
I feel this might be one of the best, if not the best one, until
now. No exact date is known, but according to a stamp on the
backsleeve I’m guessing it is from 1982. Songs 1,3 and 4 written
by A.B. Crentsil, songs 2 and 5 written by second vocalist Tony
Mensah. Get it and spread it like you’re used to ..

We hadden al enkele platen met A,B, Crentsil, persoonlijk vind
ik dit één van de beste, zoniet de beste, die ik ken. Geen exact
jaar van uitgifte is bekend, maar aan de hand van een stempel
op de achterkant gok ik dat hij uit 1982 komt. Songs 1,3 en 4
zijn van de hand van A.B. Crentsil, songs 2 en 5 van de tweede
zanger Tony Mensah. Down en deel als altijd ..

Alex Konadu’s Band – Bo Me Dua Ma Menwu
Ambassador 1981

Deze plaat met Alex Konadu’s Band uit 1981 klinkt absoluut
niet perfect. Hij heeft wat ruis enzo en naar het eind van kant
één zit er echt wat vervorming in. Helaas hebben we niet de luxe
om een betere versie te posten. Tot er ooit een betere opduikt
zullen we het met deze moeten doen. We hadden al zo’n 17 van
zijn albums, vandaag dus nummer 18. Luister zelf ..

This record with Alex Konadu from 1981 sound far from perfect.
It has some hiss and such and towards the end of side one there
is some real distortion. Unfortunately we do not have the luxury
of posting a better sounding copy. Until that day we’ll have to
settle with this one. We already had some 17 of his albums,
so today this is no. 18. Listen and make up your own mind ..

Sir Shina Adewale and the Superstars International
Verse 5
Wel-Kadeb Records 1978

An album by the two juju friends Sir Shina Peters and Segun
Adewale. They called their group, without a trace of irony, Sir
Shina Adewale and the Superstars International. Scroll back to
yesterday’s post and find two other records with them. This
one is from 1978 on the Wel-Kadeb Records label. Sweet ..

Vandaag vinden we nog een plaat met de twee juju vrienden
Sir Shina Peters en Segun Adewale. Ze noemden hun band,
zonder een greintje ironie, Sir Shina Adewale and the
Superstars International. Scroll terug naar gisteren en
vind nog twee van hun albums. Deze komt uit 1978
en verscheen op het Wel-Kadeb Records label ..

Segun Adewale & his Superstars International
Segun Adewale Records
Ibukun Orisun Iye 1984

We saw him on several earlier occasions. We have some solo
albums, one with his firend Shina Peters with whom he worked
under General Prince Adekunle. Segun Adewale reformed his juju
to become Yoruba Pop music or in short Yopop. This is his 1984
record Atewo-Lara. Like yesterday’s post an elpee on the
outstanding Ibukun Orisun Iye label ..

We zagen hem al bij een aantal eerdere gelegenheden. We hebben
enkele solo platen en eentje met zijn vriend Shina Peters met wie hij
onder General Prince Adekunle werkte. Segun Adewale hervormde
zijn juju sound om later Yoruba Pop ofwel Yopop te worden. Dit
is zijn Atewo-Lara uit 1984. Net als vorige geposte plaat eentje
op het mooie Ibukun Orisun Iye label ..

Young Ade Wesco and his Destiny Dandies
No Left Turn
Ibukun Orisun Iye 1979

At Discogs it is classified as highlife. I do not hear pure highlife
though. I think I hear more juju. We also cannot say it is pure juju,
somewhere in the middle of the two and a bit more juju than highlife.
I would classify it as Juju-Highlife. From 1979 and on Ibukun
Orisun from Lagos, Nigeria. I love it, wonderful sound ..

Canadoes Super Stars of Ghana
led by Big Boy Dansoh
Medowo, Rogers All Stars 1980

The two other albums we had with Canadoes Super Stars
of Ghana had great response. It is one of those groups from
Ghana that recorded in Nigeria to get to sound different.
Recordings made by Rogers All Stars were more sparkling
somehow than the stuff made in Ghana itself. According
to Discogs, this should be their second album from back
in 1980. Sleeve looks quite bad, actual
vinyl a little better ..

De twee eerder geposte platen met de Canadoes Super
Stars of Ghana kregen enorm goede reacties. Het is zo’n
band uit Ghana die in Nigeria ging opnemen om anders
te gaan klinken. Op de een of andere manier klinken
elpees die bij Rogers All Stars gemaakt werden een heel
stuk sprankelender dan degenen uit Ghana zelf. Volgens
de lijst van Discogs is dit hun tweede album en uit 1980.
De hoes is in tamelijk belabberde staat,
het vinyl zelf is iets beter ..

Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe
and his Nigeria Sound Makers – ’76
Polydor 1975

Do you know how many albums Chief Stephen Osita
Osadebe made, I don’t. It must be a whole lot, Discogs
goes to 58 but they sometimes miss a few too. One way
or the other, we love to find another every now and then.
This one is called ’76 but was made in 1975. As side one
contains three titles and two tracks, I had to gamble which
one has two titles in one, I just assumed it was the second
and longest. Enjoy listening to the Chief ..

Weet jij hoeveel platen Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe heeft
gemaakt, ik niet. Het moeten er behoorlijk veel zijn, Discogs
gaat tot 58, maar die missen er ook nog wel eens een. Hoe
dan ook, het blijft een feestje elke keer dat er weer eentje
opduikt. Deze heet ’76, maar is uit 1975. Omdat kant één uit
twee tracks bestaat, maar wel drie titels heeft moest ik gokken
welke uit twee titels bestaat. Ik ben ervan uit gegaan dat het
de tweede en langste is. Luister naar de Chief ..

Senior Eddie Donkor
International Band of Ghana
Eye Banker
Sound Linacco 1982

Do you remember that seventies toy, a little bag with a machine
that laughs when hitting a hidden button? Senior Eddie Donkor
had one and used it around the fourth minute in the opening
track, ‘Eye Banker’. More funny little sounds colour this record
from 1982. On Discogs ‘Eye Banker’ is a complete different one,
a cassette while this is the vinyl version with different tracks.
During the eighties, Eddie Donkor was a popular figure in
Ghanaian highlife. Listen to this nice album ..

Kun jij je de lachzak nog herrinneren, een apparaatje in een zak
verborgen dat lachtte als je een knopje indrukte? Senior Eddie
Donkor had er ook een en gebruikt hem rond de vierde minuut
in de openings tune, Eye Banker. Meer kleine geluidjes sieren
deze plaat uit 1982. Een totaal andere overigens dan de ‘Eye
Banker’ op Discogs, dat was de cassette, dit de vinyl versie.
Compleet andere nummers. Eddie Donkor was een popu-
laire figuur in de Ghanese highlife in de jaren tachtig.

India’s Famous Anup Jalota presents
Trinidad’s Sundar Popo
Hot & Spicy Chutneys
Windsor Record Dept. 1980

When listening to ‘Chutney’, one first thinks, is this Bollywood ?
You don’t expect this music to come from the Island of Trinidad.
His forefathers brought it with them some 135 years ago. Sundar
Popo is credited as the father of chutney music. India’s famous
Anup Jalota and his group made this record with him. We had
one album on which Sundar Popo also performed.
Listen and enjoy these hot and spicy chutneys ..

Als je naar ‘chutney’ luistert denk je eerst, is dit Bollywood ?
Het laatste wat je verwacht is dat deze muziek van het eiland
Trinidad komt. Zijn voorvaderen brachten de muziek al 135 jaar
eerder mee. Sundar Popo wordt beschouwd als de vader van
de chutney. India’s Anup Jalota maakte deze plaat net hem.
We hadden al een ander chutney album waarop hij ook
te horen was. Luister zelf ..
