'Groove The Funk' is an essential and influential early
Afro-funk LP. The album was originally released in 1975 by the
Clover Recording Organization from Aba, Nigeria. The music is
top notch Afrobeat mixed with amazing funky-psych grooves and
featruring lots of fuzz guitar and bad-ass keyboard playing.
This album certainly is a fine exponent of the Nigerian scene!
