GROUND-BREAKING, CLASSIC BOOGIE & DISCO LP FROM 1979 NIGERIA, FEATURING °∆AGBOJU LOGUN°« First official reissue of the extremely rare full-length album by Lagos-based bandleader Shina Williams. Clean copies of the original currently sell for up to £500. The record was born in 1979 when Shina put Biddy Wright, Fred Fisher, Saliu Alabi, Prince Bola, Tutu Shoronmu, Tunde willimas and several other decorated Nigerian musicians – who played with the likes of Fela Kuti, SJOB Movement, Sonny Okoson, King Bucknor amongst others – together to record. The result is °∆African Dances°«, a timeless fusion of afrobeat, electronics, boogie and disco. Includes his most well-known song, °∆Agboju Logun°« that Williams knew was ground breaking – °»I want to show the whole wide world that Africa is alive with modern musicians to reckon with anywhere,°…. This album version is a different mix to the two-track 12°… that came out under on Earthworks, Rough Trade in 1984. Official Mr Bongo reissue. Replica original artwork. Licensed direct from Shina Williams.
