Amazing collection of Disco Music released in the 80s (1980-84) on the Nigerian label Duomo Music Ltd. and reissued here for the first time..The late 70s, the thrust of mainstream music had changed from the indigenous highlife to a more international funky disco sound. Keyboards and drum machines were the key components of the new sound. The implications on sales was real as names like Bunny Mack, Chris Okotie, Christy Essien, Jide Obi replaced Osita Osadebe and the Oriental Brothers on the charts. It was in this effervescent climate that Duomo Sounds Ltd was established by Mr Humphrey Aniakor, a business man with no prior investment in the industry. It was simply the in-thing for a young monied businessman. The name suggested European sophistication, modernity and a little abstraction. D U O M O Sounds, the kids loved it. The first release was Bassey Black’s “Someone to love” (DSL 001) which sold over a 100,000 copies, a big hit at the time. The success of the album attracted several artists the most influential of which was Mike Umoh. He aimed for the pop market with accessible, funky arrangements. However his affinity for funk and disco has made him a reference for collectors worldwide. His LP entitled, “Honey, Honey” (DSL 002) was the label’s second release and his most successful album. Also produced the labels 19th release, Bindiga’s, “No More Starvation” (DSL 019), an afro-boogie funk masterpiece. The album in its original format is very sought after by collectors and djs and changes hands for huge sums. Its been described by many as cosmic funk at its finest. Christy Ogbah´s disco soul/highlife records on Duomo are also very highly sought after. This new Livingstone Studio release presents the best of Duomo Sounds Ltd. for the first time.

Release:1978 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
First official reissue of Nigerian Boogie Disco Grail LP produced by Grotto for EMI Nigeria and originally released in 1978. Contains dance classic‘Bad city Girl’. Liner notes by Nigerian Music expert Uchenna Ikkone, include previously unpublished photos and extensive interviews by Temitope Kogbe..“Odion Iruoje was the A&R manager at EMI at the time,” Benson says, “and he auditioned us, liked he material and signed us.” Odion Iruoje of course had groomed and produced Ofege. Now he was looking to repeat the formula with other high school groups such as Tirogo, Apples and Question Mark. Grotto’s deep rock would be a welcome addition to this “schoolboy rock” series.Work on their album started immediately, with Iruoje in the producer’s chair. Adapting to the tastes of the times—as well as their own maturing musical sensibilities—Grotto started transitioning from acid rock towards sleeker, more dance floor-friendly grooves. “As I grew older I think I got a bit jazzier,” Benson says. “I also listened to Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Isley Brothers, Prince and a lot of funk groups from that era.”“Hard rock was the content of the first album,” Amenechi agrees, “and funk/jazz/R&B the focus of album number two. Especially with the late Toma Mason Jr. joining as bassist.” The group’s second album, Grotto II: Wait… No Hurry (released in 1979) reflected the growing sophistication of its members’ musical outlook. Fat, funky bass grooves rubbed shoulders with jazzy flute lines; space-age synthesizer tones punctuated good, old-fashioned crunchy rock riffs.

"At Last" war das Debütalbum der nigerianischen College-Band Grotto. Es erschien im Jahr 1977 undfusionierte auf mitreißende und eigenwillige Weise Rock mit Funk und Afrobeat. Ursprünglich formierte sichGrotto aus 15-, 16-jährigen Schülern des St. Gregory College in Lagos. Ausgehend von Jimi Hendrix undCarlos Santana begannen die Jungs in ihren Anfangstagen damit, die zu jener Zeit in Nigeriavorherrschenden Sounds zu einem psychedelischen und schwergewichtigen Fusion-Monster zuamalgamieren. Da das College instrumententechnisch gut ausgestattet war und zudem das künstlerischeBestreben seiner Schüler förderte, fand Grotto beste Bedingungen zum Üben vor. Im Gegensatz zu vielenanderen nigerianischen Acts, die als Studiobands tätig waren, tingelte Grotto nach Beendigung der Schulzeitdurchs Land und bespielte sämtliche Hotspots Nigerias, teils mit prominenten Kollegen wie Fela Kuti, TeeMac, Sonny Okosun und Segun Bucknor. Derart eingespielt präsentierte Grotto Songs aus einem Guss. Unddas hört man "At Last" auch an. Für dessen Wiederveröffentlichung als CD und LP wurde das Album von SeeWhy Audio restauriert und von The Carverey remastered. Abgerundet wird die Nachpressung durch rareFotos und Interviews mit dem Leadgitarristen Soga Benson sowie dem Produzenten Odion Iruoje.
