A Dutch newspaper published an article about African vinyl and the scarcity of it.
K.Frimpongs “Blue Album”, a very sought after lp is now available on cd and lp again
in it’s more or less original form. We’re very happy to see African music getting
some attention at all, let alone re-releasing hot material from Africa’s past.
A passion we share with those taking that initiative. Here at the GG it is a common
happening bringing back hot African vinyl. How about this 1979 piece of Nigerian
highlife by the Anambra Brothers International, led by Uncle Victor Chunkwu. On
the famous Rogers All Stars label and in rather good shape, get it & spread it !

Hi Moos, has Victor Chunkwu anything to do with Victor Chukwu, posted bycombandrazor : http://combandrazor.blogspot.fr/2008/10/born-throw-away.html ?<br />A request from Rico
..I think there's a good possibility they are the same, it wouldn't be the first time names get to be written differently several times..
Thanks Moos, I like much this music, if will upload other vinyl of this band o orchestra, thanks
I can easily see a party rocking through til daybreak on a group like this which is hardly among the finest of its time and place. Makes you wonder what it was like to sample the musical nightlife in Lagos at that time–just how many bands were competing, at how many bars, and with so much talent on display. I hope wherever Uncle Victor is, he's enjoying himself thoroughly. Thanks for this.
Such a fun album – great stuff, Uncle Victor, you can play at my party any time! :-)<br /><br />Thanks Moos!!
