EMUSIC-022BF0B5

i'd say 13 and 14 from the first disc are the sweetest songs ever. if you only have 2 credits, get 'em! added on to this compilation but initially released separately. also a song disco high life not featured here but on spotify. classic

Great compilation

UKMikeyA

As well as the sixties Pye Nigeria album of the same name this compilation includes Orlando's Afro Ideas 1969-72. If you like Fela Kuti give this a spin, particularly disc 2.

They Say All Music Guide

This Vampi Soul package contains the original Strut reissue of Orlando Julius & His Modern Aces 1966 debut album Super Afro Soul, plus four bonus cuts, which were all singles that preceded its release — indeed, demanded its release, as the people of Nigeria went wild for this blend of the highlife sound with soul. The first four singles, “Jagua Nana,” “Topless,” “Olufe,” and “E Se Re Re,” are all sounds that point the way to the album. The first has a much more juju-meets-jazz feel (and indeed it is the reason the track was included on the album as its final track). Its B-side, “Ijo Soul,” touches on calypso and early James Brown-styled funk along with Stax-brewed dance-soul. The other three cuts move toward the interconnected rhythms and dance music feel of ’60s Northern soul. Indeed, this magical brew with upstepping rhythms, tight, funky changes, and repetitive grooves with American soul and rhythm and blues melody and horn lines is no less than infectious today — just ask any of the DJs in the U.K. who began playing this stuff in the ’90s. – Thom Jurek
