Orlando Julius & His Modern Aces "Super Afro Soul" 1966




This LP (original a 10inch) was first released in Nigeria in 1966 by Orlando Julius & His Modern Aces. The groovy title Super Afro Soul tells the story bout the music on this nugget - you get a lovely mix of afrosoul, highlife, jazz and american R&B, but the whole production is flirting a lot with the western afro-american sound, and in parts it's actually sounds more american than the typical nigerian sound at the time. They also do a sweet and groovy cover of Temptations My Girl! This album has a reissue on Vampi Soul with several bonus tracks (this is just the original album). Groovy!

Enjoy!
