The Apostles were disciples of a heavy kind of psychedelic soul/rock fusion. After The Funkees left for London, they stepped into the breach to become the champions of East Nigeria's flourishing post-war music scene. This album from 1976, containing a heavy mix of wailing guitar, swirling organ and James Brown-style vocals, became a fixture in every East Nigerian home.

Also available: THE APOSTLES (CD).
