Unity Band of Warrake
Ijebor Trading Store 1975

In our Etsakor section, today some attention for the Unity
Band of Warrake. On one record its front man is named
S.A. Lawani, on another it is S.M. Lawani. I don’t mind what
his name really is and however the vinyl is a little dusty, the
highlife is very deep. This is their first album listed on Discogs,
not sure if it is their first issue. Enjoy listening to the Unity
Band of Warrake, on Ijebor from 1975 ..

Vandaag in onze Etsakor highlife afdeling eens wat aandacht
voor de Unity Band of Warrake. Op de ene plaat heet de front
man S.A. Lawani, op de andere S.M. Lawani. Het maakt me
niet uit hoe hij werkelijk heet en hoewel enigszins stoffig,
de highlife is van het zeer diepe soort. Dit is hun vroegst
gedateerde album op Discogs, niet zeker of het ook hun
eerste plaat is. Op Ijebor en uit 1975,
luister met plezier ..

      Dear Jewel, you keep asking the same
      thing over and over. With all respect,
      the Global Groove is not a jukebox.
      Try listening to something else
      for a change ..

    Thanks Moos. It’s very nice to have more Etsakor, specially from this Ijeibor label. This one is special, very acoustic and percussions.
    Hope we could discover some other musicians like A. K. Omokunu or Denge & His Social Group Of Ihievbe (from the discog page on the Ijeibor label). Thanks again Moos.
