General Prince Adekunle and his Supersonic Sounds,Awodi Nfo Ferere, Ibukun Orisun Iye Records 1976

Late post tonight, I blew a recording earlier and had to start
all over. What have we got ? This is an album by one of the
greatest juju masters. Sir Shina Peters and Segun Adewale made
their name with the band of Prince Adekunle but reached much
bigger public than their teacher did. Although less known world-
wide, Prince Adekunle’s music belongs to Nigeria’s very best.
Most pages state this LP is from 1975 but this label clearly says ’76.

  1. It is so nice to wake up in the morning and find a gift. Prince Adekunle is one of my favorites but he is imposible to find. Until now the only examples of his work that I had were the two great songs that Likembe had posted. I’ve hunted and searched without any luck in finding more. Global Groover you have done it again. This, I wanna tell you, is a treat! Thank you Moos.

  2. Yes Moos, and I thanks you once agin for your great work. I’m busy with your Mandingo archives at present, and will be moving onto Juju later. How did I live before without this blog?
    Cheers

  3. Unbelievable! Great sound of juju-master Prince Adekunle. What a fantastic record!

    Since the heydays of King Sunny Adé in Europe (1982) a big juju-fan. But your collection has the secret diamonds of this music. Hope to hear more of Adekunle, Segun Adewale (one of my favorite juju-artists) and others.

  4. This is great stuff! Odd touches like the big off-key guitar strums that pop up every nine minutes or so, or the final chord. Makes me think the tonal center of the whole thing is not where I thought. THANKS for the Supersonics.
