  • A rare afrofunk album from Fela Kuti protégée Kingsley Bucknor Jr. is being reissued for the first time

    This looks intriguing:

    King Bucknor Jr. & Afrodisk Beat 79 ‎– African Woman

    https://thevinylfactory.com/news/a-r...or-first-time/

    "African Woman, the second album from Kingsley Bucknor Jr., aka the Black Isaiah of Africa, is being reissued on vinyl for the first time by Hot Casa Records, remastered by The Carvery.
    Kingsley, a disciple of Fela Kuti and member of his Kalakuta Republic communal artists compound, recorded and self-produced the LP in 1979 at EMI’s Lagos studio, with the help of a 16-piece band called the Afrodisk Beat Organisation, plus 10 backing vocalists.
    The record was originally released by Nigerian independent label Grandstar Records, an offshoot of the Shannu Olu imprint, both of whom put out records from Nigeria’s finest like Tony Allen.
    African Woman‘s limited-edition vinyl package also features photographs and interviews."

        That does sound okay but I would have liked him to have lengthened the 'Domdomdomdedomdomdom....' bit in 'Woman Nature' That could have gone on for about 10 minutes.
