Twist And Shout

Digitally remastered edition. First official reissue of the extremely rare full-length album by Lagos-based bandleader Shina Williams. Clean copies of the original currently sell for up to £500. The record was born in 1979 when Shina put Biddy Wright, Fred Fisher, Saliu Alabi, Prince Bola, Tutu Shoronmu, and several other decorated Nigerian musicians - who played with the likes of Fela Kuti, SJOB Movement, Sonny Okoson, King Bucknor amongst others - together to record. The result is African Dances, a timeless fusion of afrobeat, electronics, boogie and disco. Includes his most well-known song, 'Agboju Logun' that Williams knew was ground breaking - "I want to show the whole wide world that Africa is alive with modern musicians to reckon with anywhere,".
