Details / Info

Firstly issued as a 10inch in 1969, this is a late 60s or early 70s repress on LP with same tracklist, compiling Uwaifo's 60s EPs released previously on Philips' "West African" label. The maestro's debuts are First class Highlife and 'Essaka' music !
Sleeve has edge wear, corner wear and moderate general aging -for a Nigerian pressing-. Record is shady with some kind of solar heat effect but it doesn't affect playing too much, just producing some light hiss and surface noise. Plays with a few light pops but no deep marks, just superficial scuffs. Nice VG+ copy overall!
