Back in 2001, the first edition of NIGERIA 70 on Strut broke the mould for African compilations, a 3CD powerhouse featuring a wide spectrum of musical styles from across the 1970s and an audio documentary tracing the music’s history. For 2007, Strut delve deeper into the Lagos underground for NIGERIA 70: LAGOS JUMP, another essential box of West African dynamite with the emphasis firmly on the dancefloor. From the heavy jazz of Peter King to Bola Johnson’s scratchy Afro funk and the rolling grooves of juju legend Sir Shina Peters, the album captures a rich and unique era in West African music.
