On the album 'I Am OK' from 1985, the listener is treated to Melvin Ukachi's (Ofege) trademark sound. But it also shows a perfect glimpse of the late '70s Afrobeat works combining soul, jazzy rhythms, William Onyeabor style laid back electro funk synths and fluid boogie-danceability. Female backing vocals come from Princess Bunmi Olajubu (Femi Kuti band). Tidal Waves Music now presents the first ever reissue of this rare classic available as a 180 gram vinyl edition, limited to 500 copies. Comes with original artwork.
