Mind-blowingly brilliant idiosyncratic synthesizer-led african disco-funk! 

This the first compilation dedicated to the totally unique works of Nigerian musician William Onyeabor -- all recorded between '77 and '85.  Religious and politically-charged lyrics, stripped down percussion, spacey synthesised grtooves, and bone-tingling deep funk.  A must!
