Most Eastern Nigerians of a certain age hold a special place in their
hearts for the music of The Apostles, the musical group based in the
commercial city of Aba and best known for their string of folksy pop hits from the mid-1970s into the early 80s. More hardcore scenesters, though, may remember the band's more obscure early years as an unruly highlife and Congo music bar band, and their transformation into rugged soul outfit to replace departing hometown heroes The Funkees of Aba, who were getting set to relocate to London.
Academy Lps, working once again with Voodoo Funk, is proud to revive this long-lost 45 from 1973 in time for Record Store Day.
This is a fantastic two-sider of deep-n-dirty early 70's Afro-funk that has few peers. This is a truly deluxe release - fully licensed from the band, painstakingly remastered, pressed with UK style punch-out center and
housed in a beautiful custom picture sleeve. Limited edition of 1,500.
