Ode-Omore Osarenren & Ewaen Osetin Stars – Oyoetigbe - The Birth Of A Child
Dig This Way Records
Late 80's Nigerian (Edo) highlife oddity. Pretty obscure.. full with quirky synths and groovy drumprogramming. Total highlight here is Enotiomwan, with its catchy horns, funky synth hits , slapbass and crazily deep vocals. HEAVY!
It's been one of the 1st Nigerian Lps to land in our collection some years ago, sort of Late 80's Nigerian (Edo) highlife oddity. Pretty obscure.. full with quirky synths and groovy drumprogramming , the track "Enotiomwan" is Highlight on this LP with its catchy horns, funky synth hits , slapbass and crazily deep vocals, surely one of our all time favourite and most selected during our parties.
After weeks and weeks of deep research in Nigeria during summer 2018 we finally found and met, in Benin City, Mr. Odomore who than introduced us to all the members of the band and to the producer of the Lp. We discovered that á»Œyá»etigbe - The Birth Of A Child is his 1st Lp made back in 1988 and that, at the time, was pressed in a very limited edition and is still nowdays highly unkown and hard to find!!
It will be pressed in quality thick paper with restored Artwork by Legno a private company in Milano, an insert with unpublished pictures of the artists involved plus a nice interview. The Audio is taken from 2 copies of the Lp and restored by Colin Young in UK
