Concentrated Nigerian disco from 1980: I.G's only album Bomp fetches triple figures without so much as a second thought. Listen to these two limited, loud-pressed album highlights and you'll understand why. Galvanised by I.G's distinctive falsetto, "Disco Power" pays homage to the sound of New York while retaining a tight sense of Afro rhythm and highlife sparkled guitars. "Funk Ina Ghetto" is equally alluring. With I.G taking a more spoken word approach, it comes on strong like a Donny Hathaway joint - all dramatic and dynamic. Powerful.
