"This Double LP Is Packaged With a Stand Alone 104 Page Full Color Book, Filled With
Incredible Photos And Words By Noted Expert On Nigerian Music, Uchenna Ikonne. The Western world was in the throes of peace, love and flower power as Nigeria descended into Civil War in 1967.
The rock scene that developed during the following three years of bloodshed and destruction would come to heal
the country, propagate the world-wide ideal of the Modern Nigerian, and propel Fela Kuti to stardom after the
conflict ended in 1970.
Wake Up You! tells the story of this time, pays homage to these now-forgotten musicians and their struggle, and
brings to light the funk and psychedelic fury they created as they wrested free of the ravages of the late 1960s and
created thrilling, original Nigerian rock music throughout the 1970s.
Along with the double vinyl, Wake Up You! Includes a 104 page book full of never-seen photos and detailed liner
notes by Nigerian musicologist and researcher Uchenna Ikonne (Who Is William Onyeabor?, Brand New Wayo,
etc.), with all tracks fully licensed from the bands themselves."
