Image: 1589908 Boogie-down cosmic funk from late-seventies Nigeria - like full-throttle Roy Ayers, at his most brilliant. SHIPPING NEXT WEEK!

Jimi Lee Adams packs his inner Hendrix off to Funky Town, the horns are the horniest, Mona runs it all down with an irresistible West African tilt.

Afro-jazz scorchers, both sides.

Breaking through with The Sunflowers in Nigeria's late-sixties soul explosion, Mona moved to the US after the group's equipment was destroyed in a car accident. There she was active in the new jazz scene, before returning home towards the end of the seventies, and forming The Sensationals with guitarist Jimi Lee Adams. An unsung pioneer, Mona was Nigeria's first female pop bandleader.

Fifth in the series: all remastered at Abbey Road, cut at D&M, pressed at Pallas, and presented with a 24" by 12" full-colour poster. Available from 23.05.2014
