"The Funkees were the most admired of all groups in eastern Nigeria at that time," recalls Foundars 15's Mashal Udo. "The level of professionalism, the maturity of their sound was so much beyond what anybody else was doing. Everybody who picked up an instrument to play music aimed to be like them".

In the early 1970s The Funkees were the number-one east Nigerian band and the only outfit to seriously challenge the popular Lagos based rock combos MonoMono and BLO. Full of confidence it wasn't long before they were looking further afield and had packed their guitars and drums and moved to London. Here they recorded two seminal albums before finally breaking up in 1977 amidst some controversy and going their separate ways. This collection features for the first time all of their Nigerian 45s alongside the best of their UK album material and is accompanied by a full interview with original member Sonny Akpan.
