I.K. Dairo and his Blue Spot Band
Iya O Yemi
Afrodisia 1983

Today it is Saturday October 30, the last weekend in this month
we always change from summer- to wintertime. At 2.00 o clock
at night between Saturday and Sunday the clock turns back one
hour. For five months we remain in wintertime which is the real
time. An hour less light at night, but an hour earlier light in the
morning. For years now people discuss if we should get rid of it.
I’d say, keep it, the extra hour of light in the evenings during
summertime is very welcome. .. and now we wait for
Saturday March 26, 2022 ..

What have we got cooking this Saturday? I.K. Dairo is back at
the GG with this album from 1983. On the front sleeve we see
him with his squeezebox. I’m always waiting for him to appear
playing it, unfortunately it rarely happens. Once again a record
on which we don’t hear it. Nevertheless, the juju is very
adorable. I think we can never have too
much of I.K. Dairo’s music ..

Vandaag is het zaterdag 30 oktober, in het laatste weekend van
deze maand veranderen we altijd van zomer- naar wintertijd. Om
2.00 uur ‘s nachts van zaterdag op zondag wordt de klok één uur
terug gezet. Voor vijf maanden verblijven we in wintertijd, wat
de echte tijd is. Een uurtje minder licht ‘s avonds, maar een uurtje
vroeger licht ‘s morgens. Al jaren wordt er gediscussieerd of we er
niet ‘ns vanaf moeten. Ik zeg houden zo, dat extra uur licht tijdens
de zomermaanden is zeer welkom… en nu maar weer wachten
op zaterdag 26 maart, 2022 ..

Wat hebben we voor je vandaag? I.K. Dairo is hier terug met
deze plaat uit 1983. Op de voorkant zien we hem met zijn accordeon.
Ik wacht altijd op het moment dat we hem erop horen spelen. Helaas
gebeurt dat hoogst zelden. Ook op deze elpee horen we hem er niet
mee. Hoe dan ook, de juju is zoals altijd weer heerlijk. Ik denk
dat we nooit teveel van I.K. Dairo’s muziek kunnen hebben ..

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 ..

Prince Adekunle and his Western State Brothers

When General Prince Adekunle was still Prince Adekunle,
he operated with his Western State Brothers. This must be
their first release from 1970. With his cool but driving,
sophisticated style, Prince Adekunle is one of
the great Juju masters from the days ..

Willy Adé and his Aiyemitogo Band – Itan Olode
Good Samaritan Sound Studio 1977

In our Joryba-Juju section we find this quite rare album with
Willy Adé and his Aiyemitogo Band. No idea if he is related
to King Sunny. Music-wise it does not give the impression
he is. Once again, the web does not find him and the lp’s
sleeve also remains silent. Its back sleeve displays a quite
tasteless picture of Willy doing a silly guitar trick while
putting his foot on the back of the little man besides
him. One way or the other, the juju has something
primitive I like. Little disturbance
halfway side two ..

In onze Yoruba-Juju sectie vinden we deze tamelijk zeldzame
plaat met Willy Adé en zijn Aiyemitogo Band, Geen idee of
Willy familie is van King Sunny, muzikaal lijkt het er niet op.
Ook over dit album en zijn maker is op het web niets te
vinden. De achterkant toont ons een behoorlijk smakelo-
ze foto van Willy die een flauwe gitaar truc doet met
zijn voet op de kleine man naast hem. Hoe dan ook,
de juju heeft iets primitiefs wat ik wèl mooi
vind. Klein stukje met kras
halverwege kant twee ..

The Wizard Guitarist Emperor Pick Peters
and his Seidormatic System vol. 4
Peter L’aja Kan
African Songs Limited 1976

Goedemorgen groevers, vandaag hebben we een plaat die alleen voor de
doorgewinterde liefhebbers van juju te beluisteren valt. De geluidskwaliteit
laat nogal te wensen over. Met een beetje geluk vind ik hem in de toekomst
nog eens in betere conditie maar voor nu zullen we het hiermee moeten doen.
De laatste keer dat ik dit zei poste Jillem (Holland Tunnel Dive) direct
een betere versie, Jillem .. ?

Wat hebben we hier ? Het betreft een tamelijk zeldzame uitvoering met The
Wizard Guitarist Emperor Pick Peters and his Seidormatic System, vol. 4. We
hadden volume 3 reeds in december 2016. Die klinkt overigens een heel stuk
beter. Hoe dan ook, de juju is buitengewoon fijn als je door de
kraakjes heen kunt luisteren.

Good morning groovers, today we have a record that can only be listened to
by the most diehard juju lover. Its soundquality is far from perfect and leaves
us with wishes for a better one. With a bit of luck I’ll find a better copy in the
future but for now we’ll have to settle with this one. The last time I said some-
thing like this Jillem (Holland Tunnel Dive) came with
a clean version the same day, Jillem .. ?

What have we got here ? It concerns a quite rare album with The Wizard
Guitarist Emperor Pick Peters and his Seidormatic System vol. 4. We had
volume 3 already in december 2016. That vol sounds much better by the
way. One way or the other, the juju is very nice if you’re able
to listen through the crackles ..
