Product Description

When Nigerian afro beat comes to mind, the name that typically comes to mind is Fela Kuti. But for true enthusiasts of the genre, composer and band leader Orlando Julius is held in the same regard as his more famous colleague. By the mid-60s, Julius had already established himself as a bona fide star in Nigeria, becoming highly popular for his ability to marry traditional African rhythms with the bold arrangements and highly melodic sounds of American pop, soul, funk and R&B. Orlando Julius and the Afro Sounders, recorded between 1970 and 1973 in Ginger Baker's studio in Lagos, represents Julius working as a composer and producer with more creative freedom than his earlier recordings, recording 24 tracks with a close-knit group of musicians. The result is an album that stands as a testament to Julius' genius, and one that sounds just as good as the day it was recorded. Traffic Entertainment Group, in partnership with Voodoo Funk, is proud to present Orlando Julius and the Afro Sounders in a new edition, with audio remastered from the original analog tapes.

No longer comes with the booklet 8 April 2014
By Kofi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
The first edition from 2011 has long sold out. What Traffic Ent. is selling now is the record without the booklet, still packed with the over sized, extra wide outer sleeve which now wrinkles up and looks terrible. Voodoo Funk has not authorized this cheapo edition and strongly recommends to instead pursue various forms of digital download.
