Various Artists - Doing It In Lagos: Boogie, Pop & Disco In 1980s Nigeria (3XLP - 180g Vinyl, CD)

Ships In 3-4 Business Days

180g gatefold triple vinyl LP includes bonus 7" + booklet.

Soundway Records present a new compilation of twenty rare and mostly unavailable tracks from the slick and sassy world of Nigerian pop music and club culture of the early 1980s.

Buoyed by an explosive oil boom and a return to democracy after a series of military dictatorships, Nigeria's economy in the years of the early '80's was mirrored by its recording industry as countless young artists and groups hit the airwaves and dancefloors of the capital and beyond.
