Dancing Time: The Best of Eastern Nigeria’s Afro Rock Exponents 1973 – 77’ by The Funkees is the latest title on Soundway to mine the rich musical output of 60s and 70s Nigeria. For the five-year period this compilation spans The Funkees output crackled with dance floor fire. Having featured on three of Soundway’s most popular titles, across the definitive Nigeria Special compilation series, we felt The Funkees output deserved closer inspection. In the early 1970s The Funkees were the number-one east Nigerian band and the only outfit to seriously challenge the popular Lagos based rock combos MonoMono and BLO. Stoking the dancefloor was the young band’s first priority and The Funkees were often playing through the night, seven days a week. The Funkees - Dancing In The Nude. Download Album (SNDWD039).

The Funkees come from eastern Nigeria and had a substantial local following before relocating to London in 1973. They established themselves as a major force on London’s burgeoning West African/Caribbean scene, but disbanded in 1977, although some of their members stayed active playing sessions and touring. The Funkees’ grooves draw from the same pool of rhythms as many of the artists featured here, although they don’t have a horn section and their sound is more guitar-centric
