Ahadji Haruna Ishola and His Apala Group


I.K. Dairo and Haruna Ishola formed Star Records in 1969. In those early days they could technically only record songs up to seven minutes in length. This album presents a collection of those early recordings. Beautiful and compelling music, probably released as singles and then later compiled for this album sometime in the late 1970's or maybe early 1980's.
