J.A. Agboola and his Beaming Star vol. 3
Hasbunalau Records 1978

What have we got cooking for you today ?
This record with J.A. Agboola and his Beaming Star contains
Nigerian music, that much is clear. But how to define it is the
question. The rhythms are pointing towards juju, lots of talking
drums and such, the guitar parts and vocals are more highlife
related however. A typical album I would file under juju highlife.
It appears in good condition although from 1978, we’re lucky
to have it. Listen and make up your own mind ..

Goeiemorgen, wat hebben we vandaag voor je uitgezocht ?
Deze plaat met J.A. Agboola and his Beaming Star vol. 3 bevat
Nigeriaanse muziek, zoveel is duidelijk. Hoe deze te definiëren
is de vraag. De ritmes wijzen in de richting van juju, flink wat
talking drums en zo. De gitaren en vokalen echter klinken iets
meer naar highlife. Ik zou dit album daarom juju highlife willen
noemen. Hij verkeert in prima conditie alhoewel uit 1978.
Luister zelf en bedenk wat jij ervan vindt ..

    You still uploading LAME 192 VBR music masked as 320. Setting bitrates to 320 when the encoding is tuned for LAME VBR 2 is just a waste of space. It doesn’t sound any better. Your fooling tons of people visiting this site. Only proper 320 is CBR or ABR.

    Incredible ! He can have free and rare music but he’s not happy with it !
    Thanks for your last post. Seems like juju to my ears.

    What an ungrateful dickhead John Doe (talk about masking). Maybe a little bit of gratitude and an ounce of humility would do you good. As to the music it all sounds pretty darn good to my ears.

    John Doe is wrong
    My music sounds best played over a string connecting two tin cans.
