Ahh! Time for some funky Afro-Rock again with another exciting release from the magnificent Soundway Records out of the UK. I first heard The Funkees on one of the play-lists on the Voodoo Funk Blog and their songs have turned up on several Afro-Funk and Rock compilations that I have, so I knew very well what I was getting into when I finally procured a copy from my local CD emporium. A compilation covering their short but seemingly prolific recording career in Nigeria back in the 70's this lot is an outstanding brace of deep African funk and groovy rock that just blows your mind. Essential listening and get my highly unequivocal rating of 5/5.
