Outreachat said... "This was the first juju album to use the Hawaiian guitar. Its effect was so spell-binding I still recall being a part of crowds on a Lagos street September 1977 listening in wonder to Sunny's latest innovation: it was unlike anything he had ever attempted. The long steel guitar solo 10:11ff is a rendering of a folk song by the twins, The Lijadu Sisters, "Iya O, Ololufe Mi" (My Mother, My Lover), but Sunny's guitar takes it right into the spheres!"
I added a "hit monitor" to this blog yesterday (check out the spinning globe at the bottom of the page). Nice to see hits coming in from around the world. Thank you everyone. By the way, that red dot you see at the tip of Florida... that's me.
