"Nigeria 1970. Highlife, Rock, Jazz & Native Blues rub shoulders and are turned out at an unprecedented level. New styles meet old styles. Newfound national confidence follows the near break-up of the nation following the Biafran war.
New fashions meet old fashions, creating new fusions. Soundway present a second volume of 18 original and previously un-reissued tracks from the time. Obscure A-sides, B-sides & album cuts that have resisted a second look until now".
