Wrinkar Experience – I Am A Natural Man (Nigeria, 1970s, EMI Nigeria)

For today, I wanted  to share with you “I Am A Natural Man“, an excellent psychedelic Afro Funk Rock Stormer from the Wrinkar Experience, one of my fave band of this genre, that was composed the nigerian Dan Ian(vocals and lead guitar) and the cameroonians Edjo’o Jacques Racine (bass & guitar) and Ginger Forcha (organ).

The band only existed six months from 1972 to 1973 before splitting up, & only released three singles produced by the mythical nigerian Odion Iruoje, including the hits “Fuel For Love” & “Soundway” – Enjoy !

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.

You can download this mix here, and listen to it near the beach or the pool, drinking a fruit cocktail.

(due to an imminent travel from the rainy Paris to the Southern France, i didn’t have the time to clean some of the records before recording the selection, so sorry for the dusty quality of some tracks !).
