Willy Adé and his Aiyemitogo Band – Itan Olode
Good Samaritan Sound Studio 1977

In our Joryba-Juju section we find this quite rare album with
Willy Adé and his Aiyemitogo Band. No idea if he is related
to King Sunny. Music-wise it does not give the impression
he is. Once again, the web does not find him and the lp’s
sleeve also remains silent. Its back sleeve displays a quite
tasteless picture of Willy doing a silly guitar trick while
putting his foot on the back of the little man besides
him. One way or the other, the juju has something
primitive I like. Little disturbance
halfway side two ..

In onze Yoruba-Juju sectie vinden we deze tamelijk zeldzame
plaat met Willy Adé en zijn Aiyemitogo Band, Geen idee of
Willy familie is van King Sunny, muzikaal lijkt het er niet op.
Ook over dit album en zijn maker is op het web niets te
vinden. De achterkant toont ons een behoorlijk smakelo-
ze foto van Willy die een flauwe gitaar truc doet met
zijn voet op de kleine man naast hem. Hoe dan ook,
de juju heeft iets primitiefs wat ik wèl mooi
vind. Klein stukje met kras
halverwege kant twee ..
