The Funkees- Break Through

Now that's a mystery. How did this Atomic Rooster song makes its way to Nigeria to be covered by the Funkees? One for the ages, man. Proof positive that the world has been small for a long time now.

Good cover, too. The 1960s and 1970s were an amazingly fertile period for Nigerian music. Highlife led to Afrobeat, with Fela and the rest. Just remarkable.
