Funk In The Right Direction

One of the many great reissues to surface this year is SJOB Movement's "A Move In The Right Direction". This funky Nigerian-based group originally released the rare album in 1970, however thanks to the good people at Academy LPs in New York we can all now enjoy the amazing classic. Overall the whole record is very funky and blends the lines between African funk, disco, and Afrobeat with standout cuts like "Country Love", "Omo Loro (To Nje Eyin Awo)", and my personal favorite "Stone Funk". Up until now this record was nearly impossible to find, therefore I highly recommend picking up a copy of the reissue while supplies remain.
