The Western world was in the throes of peace, love and flower power as Nigeria descended into Civil War in 1967. The rock scene that developed during the following three years of bloodshed and destruction would come to heal the country, propagate the world-wide ideal of the Modern Nigerian, and propel Fela to stardom after conflict ended in 1970. Wake Up You! tells the story of this time, pays homage to these now-forgotten musicians and their struggle, and brings to light the funk and psychedelic fury they created as they wrested free of the ravages of the late 1960s and created thrilling, original Nigerian rock music throughout the 1970s. The CD will be presented in two volumes, each in a 104 page book full of never-seen photos along with detailed liner notes by Nigerian musicologist and researcher Uchenna Ikonne ("Who Is William Onyeabor?"), with all tracks fully licensed from the bands themselves.
