(CD/LP/MP3) Academy LPs ALP001, 2009-04-07

Ofege recorded this LP while still in high school in Nigeria in 1973, and with its sweet harmonies, wailing fuzz guitar and virtuoso drumming, it quickly became a classic of the Afro-rock genre. Mastered by Tim Warren from the best possible sources, Try And Love is available for the first time in over 35 years, officially licensed and lovingly pressed.
