Het is bijna een jaar geleden dat we deze plaat hadden met de
Harmony Kings met General Franco Lee Ezute, onze blogvriend
Nick voegde er achteraf nog een mooie video aan toe. Ongeveer
een week geleden had collega blogger Jillem van Holland Tunnel
Dive ook een goede plaat van ze. Vandaag nog zo’n schijf vinyl.
Deze is uit 1990 en bevat vier songs. General Franco Lee wordt
beschouwd als een van de grotere Igbo Hihlife artiesten. Geen
diepgravende achtergrond info hier maar wel diepe sounds ..

Chief Dr. Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, Barry Wonder
Fuji Garbage Series II
Siky Oluyole Records 1988

Already in december 2008 I posted the first volume of Chief Dr.
Sikiru Barrister’s Fuji Garbage. This second volume opens with a
little disturbing hiss but sounds better later. Although fuji does
not have any guitars normally, this album does. One way or the
other, sparkling fuji record with the great Sikiru Ayinde Barrister.
Recorded in Afrodisia Recording Studio,
on Siky Oluyole Records ..

Het was reeds in december 2008 dat ik de eerste van de drie
volumes plaatste van Chief Dr. Sikiru Ayinde Barrister’s Fuji
Garbage serie. Dit tweede volume opent helaas met een licht
storende hiss maar klinkt verderop weer prima. Alhoewel fuji
eigenlijk geen gitaren meebrengt doet deze plaat dit wel. Hoe
dan ook, dit is een sprankelende fuji beleving met de grote
Sikiru Ayinde Barrister. Opgenomen in Afrodisia
Recording Studio, op Siky Oluyole Records ..
