Now-Again licensed this essential album from Tirogo's bandleader, bassist and lead vocalist Wilfred Ekanem. Float is one of Nigeria's late 70s psych-rock masterpieces - as influenced by Jimi Hendrix as James Brown, enveloped by disco and attached to Fela's Afro-Beat. The majority of the album is sung in English, with a smattering of Yoruba. Of course, fuzz guitars, swirling synths and funky drums predominate. The CD issue of this is presented in conjunction with Shadoks, and comes with Egon's extensive interview with Wilfred Ekanem.
