Body And Soul

Here is a funky African gem that I've been enjoying lately, titled "Body and Soul" by William Onyeabor. This track was originally released on Onyeabor's 1980 hard-to-find album William Onyeabor In Body & Soul. This Nigerian native is mostly noted for his 1978 album Atomic Bomb, which features the funky classic Afro gem "Better Change Your Mind". That being said, I tend to prefer "Body and Soul" with it's overall heavy mid-tempo funk groove and tasty electric organ work throughout. Certainly a prime dose of heavy African funk to chew on. Enjoy!
