ADP005 – The Hygrades, The Funkees & Wrinkar experience : A Selection of Afro Rock & Funky 7 Inches from Nigeria

Hi everyone !
As promised, here comes a little summer selection of 10 funky / afro rock tracks taken from some seven inches of my personal collection.
These 7′, from famous Nigerian bands, were issued at the time on the Nigerian division of the well known English label EMI / HMV (remember the deaf dog ?) and are really hard to lay hands on, specially in this condition.
