Xtasy. "E Je Ka Jo" (1984)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX6ZcS0uOGI


Xtasy. "Isale Eko" (1984)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJQidr9A2FQ


Xtasy is a Nigerian duo from the 80's. The group was made up of Roy and Stella Murray-Bruce. Xtasy only made one album on the label of Ben Murray-Bruce's Silver Bird/Ben Murray-Bruce Records.

Ben Murray-Bruce needs no introduction in the Nigerian entertainment world because he started bringing world-renowned musicians into the country from 1980. This album is an ultra super rare boogie,modern soul obscurity lp from Nigeria.

"Band On The Run" (a trip to Lagos). Paul McCartney & Wings (1973).


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZJoxKffGyY

Band on the Run is an album by Paul McCartney & Wings, released in 1973. It was Wings' third album. It became Wings' most successful album and remains the most celebrated of McCartney's post-Beatles albums. It was 1974's top-selling studio album in the United Kingdom and Australia, and revitalised McCartney's critical standing.

It was the last McCartney album issued on the Apple Records label.

Bored with recording in the United Kingdom, they wanted to go to an exotic locale. After asking EMI to send him a listing of all their international recording studios, Paul happened upon Lagos in Nigeria and was instantly taken with the idea of recording in Africa (EMI Studios on Wharf Road, Apapa).

The band established a routine of recording during the week and playing tourist on the weekends. Paul temporarily joined a country club where he would spend most mornings. The band would be driven to the studio in the early afternoon where recording would last into the late evening and sometimes early morning. To make up for the departed band members, Paul would play drums and lead guitar parts with Denny playing rhythm guitar and Linda adding keyboards.

More incidents would plague Wings' Lagos stay. While out walking one night against advice, Paul and Linda were robbed at knifepoint. The assailants made away with all of their valuables and even stole a bag containing a notebook full of handwritten lyrics and songs, and cassettes containing demos for songs to be recorded.

Another incident was the confrontation with local Afrobeat star and political activist Fela Kuti who publicly accused the band of being in Africa to exploit and steal African music after their visit to his club. Kuti even went to the studio to confront McCartney who played their songs for him proving that they contained no local influence whatsoever. Later on drummer and former Cream member Ginger Baker invited the band to record their entire album at his place, ARC Studio in Ikeja. Though not wanting the invitation, Paul agreed to go there for one day. The song "Picasso's Last Words" was recorded at ARC with Baker contributing a percussive tin of gravel.

Is that why Ben Bruce's son did not allow us see road about two years back? Every evening on silverbird tv, just immediately after the 9pm news, the station played a rap single sung by the boy. Very dry song. I remember my sister always hissed and complained that just because the boy was Ben's son did not mean they had to offend our senses with this tasteless and meaningless noise.

This was when Nigeria was truly the giant of Africa and commanded respect. Not like the present day when the noun 'Nigeria' has become synonymous with almost every manner of vice found in the dictionary

There's a reason for that paranoia. James Brown came to Nigeria in 1970. He and members of his band often visited Fela's club. Some members of his band later admitted that they were taking notes.

Since then there's been a massive debate (which might later break out on this thread). Who copied who? Did James Brown copy Fela (the yelling, etc) or did Fela copy James Brown? So when Fela saw these "foreigners" (I'm not going to use the other terms) in his club, he probably thought "here we go again".
