(7") Academy LPs ASS001, 2011-07-29

Academy LPs is proud to announce the debut of it's Academy Special Single series in conjunction with Voodoo Funk (Frank Gossner). First up is a single by Stoneface and Life Everlasting, from the Nigerian Music Scene. This is their only 7 inch, from 1973. This single is a fantastic two side: Love is free is a gritty Psych Rock tune with a trippy guitar solo while Agawalan Mba is a bulldozing Afro-Funk tune with gravelly vocals and heavy fuzz guitar. An incredibly rare and great single rescued from obscurity by Academy/Voodoo Funk released as a limited edition (1000 copies) picture sleeve 7". Less than 5 original copies are known worldwide!

Press Release :
Academy is proud to announce the debut of it's Academy Special Single series in conjunction with Voodoo Funk (Frank Gossner).

All 45s will come in deluxe custom designed picture sleeves, have original "punch out" style records and will feature the rarest and best African 45s Frank has turned up in his years of digging in Africa. This, as all the singles in this series, will be strictly limited to 1000 copies.

First up is a single by Stoneface and Life Everlasting. Stoneface was already a veteran of the Nigerian Music Scene when he formed this band and cut this (their only) 7" in 1973. Starting with The Tall Men in the mid '60s, Stoneface was soon asked to join The Postmen with legendary guitarist Goddy Oku and the great Sonny Okosuns. After a stint in the Highgrades, he formed his own group with Kingsley 'Dallas' Anywanhu (from the Highschool band Dee-Mites), lead guitarist Maurice 'Jackie Moore' Anyaorah, rhythm guitarist Roy Obika and bassist Jimmy Henshaw -- and formed Life Everlasting.

This single is a fantastic two side: 'Love is free' is a gritty Psych Rock tune with a trippy guitar solo while 'Agawalan Mba'is a bulldozing Afro-Funk tune with gravelly vocals and heavy fuzz guitar. An incredibly rare and great single rescued from obscurity by Academy/Voodoo Funk!
