African System Orchestra - Bad Friend (Nigeria 1978)

An Uncle Roddus Album Review
African Music Month

Very little info on the net about this large collection of Cameroonian Musicians based in Nigeria. A pleasant recording with plenty of stuff happening in these four 9 minute tracks, as you would expect with so many in the band. The style of music on offer here reminds me of some of the South African Stuff that came out of Soweto, with  about 3 guitars playing along, one in each channel and one in both as well as some nice brass solos to keep it interesting. Plenty of good melody's and the quality is consistent across all four tracks which makes the songs all sound a bit similar, but overall an enjoyable listen that won't set the world alight. Rating 3/5
