Wake Up You! tells the story of the development of the rock scene in Nigeria after the Civil War in 1967. It pays homage to these now-forgotten musicians and their struggle, and brings to light the funk and psychedelic fury they created as they wrestled free of the ravages of the late 1960s and created thrilling, original Nigerian rock music throughout the 1970s.
Full of never-seen photos and detailed liner notes by Nigerian musicologist Uchenna Ikonne, as well as a CD of key tracks.Includes a CD with all tracks fully licensed from the bands themselves.
