2 - FUNKEES - NOW I'M A MAN - (LP) 
PMG


Formed after the Biafran War to raise spirits in the east, this Nigerian band quickly conquered the dance floors of Lagos and then, in 1973, headed for London to tear up the local scene. 'Now Im A Man' captures the band at the height of its London-era pomp. Africans were making soca, West Indians were playing afro-funk and discolypso blasted from boom boxes across West London. The Funkees soaked it all up and delivered back, funkier, tighter and louder. Bookended by two Santana-esque jams, 'I'm A Man' and '303', The Funkees' second album delivers slow burning Afrobeat ('Mimbo'), urgent jungle bongo chants ('Salam') and straight-ahead floor-fillers ('Dance With Me'). Legendary BBC DJ John Peel recorded not one, but two sessions with The Funkees.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Now I'm A Man 02. Korfisa 03. Dance With Me 04. Mimbo 05. Patience 06. Salam 07. Time 08. 303
