Funky Music From the S.J.O.B. Movement

A movement of 4 : Samuel, Jonnie, Ottay, and Bolla (EMI Nigeria). I don't remember where I picked this up, probably at Papa Disco's shop in Cotonou. It's one of those albums you simply want to buy because of the cover and a song called 'Stone Funk' always gets my attention!

P.S. Miles Cleret and Hugo Mendez at Soundway Records are going to release another Nigerian compilation, 'Nigeria Special: Highlife, Afro-Sounds & Nigerian Blues 1970-1976 (Summer 2007).

hey pieter,

thanks for this! came across your posts when I had a look for SJOB after finding "Love Affair" on one of the new Nigeria comps. Amazing TunE! I now live in Lagos, and had this dream that I would find the holy grail of afrobeat records once i got here. Brought my vestax in preparation. Alas, I havent really been able to find the source in any way. Would you know where to start? Any help appreciated, as is this blog!

All the best
