"Another real revelation from Nigeria, the 4-piece group Blo fused Nigerian high life sounds with the best in UK and USA psychedelia, funk and boogie, creating a totally unique sound. Massive in their native country for many years, they recorded six albums between 1972 and 1981 (including one in the UK) and we feature here the best of their work on one album for the first time anywhere. Watch out for a possible re-union tour!"
