Lab Overview

Sought-after afro funk and soul from the 70's Lagos scene lovingly repressed by Hot Casa! BLO's Step Three earns it holy grail status among collectors with some seriously heavy afro-grooves that will shake up the sound system and heat up the dance floor. Step Three comes right before BLO's disco period, making it a potent representation of the real afro soul sound infused with heavy funk and rock. More info on BLO from Hot Casa: "The 3 core BLO band's members were "B" for Berkely "Ike" Jones on guitar, "L" for Laolu "Akins" Akintobi on drums, and "O" for Mike "Gbenga" Odumosu on bass. BLO was formed just as a trio late 1972 and split up in 1982. They developed their music on tour before they recorded their first album, Chapter One in 1973 on EMI Records. They built something unique, original and different than any other young African group at this time, melting together Rock with its African roots and transmuting it into Soul-Fusion. They left an indelible impression on the Nigerian music scene and became an institution for worldwide music lovers." This is the first time the record has been repressed outside of Nigeria, so don't miss it!
