Born Throw Away

I haven't had time to post much as I've been working on a few projects that I hope will come to light soon, but I figured I'd try to get to some of the requests that have piled up over the past few months.

For example, when I was still in Nigeria, ambinwoke asked to hear some music from Victor Chukwu... I never did find the particular Victor Chuks & the Black Irokos album that I promised, but I did manage to pick up a somewhat raggeed copy his LP Akalaka.

(Not sure what year this is from... Judging by the attire worn by the musicians on the cover and the fact that the record has the old pink and orange Tabansi label, I'm guessing 1977-ish.)

Victor Chukwu - "Born Throw Away"
Victor Chukwu - "Ogbu Mmadu"

Feel free to hit me up with more requests, folks... I'll try to fill as many of them as I can!

Great stuff. Do you have anything by The Apostles of Aba or The Strangers.

yep... i do have the Apostles of Aba (coincidentally. calumbinho also requested the Apostles!) and i guess we'll be having some of that soon.

i don't have much by The Strangers, but you can find a nice track from them here (if you don't have this one already).
