The CD Comes Packaged In A Hard Cover 100 Page Color Book, Filled With Incredible Photos And Words By Nigerian music historian Uchenna Ikonne (Who Is William Onyeabor?). 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. Presented in two volumes, each in a 100 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. Track listing: Theodore Nemy - Come Back, Funkees - Slipping Into Darkness, Hykkers - I Want A Break Thru, The Hygrades - In The Jungle (Vocal), Shadow Abraham w/ Monomono Friends Babalawo, Waves - Wake Up You, War-Head Constriction - Shower Of Stone, Question Mark Love, Action 13 - Set Me Free, Jay U Experience - Baby Rock, The Doves - Flying Bird, Kukumbas - Awa Lani Arawa, The Believers - Life Will Move, Tony Grey & The Black 7, Ceejebs - Life In Cannan, The Identicals - Who Made The World.
