    This is AWESOME!! Wow! The excellent Sound Way records have surpassed themselves with this, the second part of a planned trio of Nigeria-focused compilations. Following on from their essential collection of Nigerian highlife, this installment focuses on the homegrown disco and boogie sounds of the mid to late 1970s Lagos nightclub scene! This is an incredible collection of super-obscure African disco and boogie that you will almost certainly never have heard before - this stuff is truly incredible and sits perfectly next to the American records that served as inspiration for these Nigerian musicians! Indeed, the DJs in the underground nightspots of mid to late 1970s Lagos would spin local talent like this alongside US import singles by the likes of Brass Construction, BT Express, and James Brown! Saturday and Sunday nights were for looking good and going out in late 1970s Lagos evidently! This is an essential compilation that reveals Nigeria's secret disco treasure to the world! - and as with all the Sound Way releases, this comes with loads of notes and photos! Very highly recommended!
