EDITORS’ NOTES

Strut Records adds to its catalog of reissues with this beautiful collection of vintage Nigerian funk, juju, highlife, and pop. Capturing a fruitful time in the country’s history, Nigeria 70 shows local bands and hitmakers embracing and reinventing a wide swath of sounds. The heady psych-guitar breakdowns of Ify Jerry Crusade’s “Everybody Likes Something Good,” the delicately complex highlife of Peacocks Guitar Band’s “Eddie Quansa,” the flute-driven reggae of Chief Checker’s “Africa Irie”—they’ll all get bodies moving at your next dance party.
