    Take A Trip With Asiko LP (1977)

    Gorrilla Records

I couldn't find much info on this mysterious Nigerian band... only that they spent some time in Miami and made their way to Germany where they recorded this record in 1977.  Take A Trip With Asiko made a splash on the Soul Strut board in the early 00s where it could be seen going for $3-$400.  It's a solid output of horn-laden afro funk with jazz and soul influences.   The top track on here is "Love & Peace" which has a strong James Brown "Hot Pants" vibe.  Another favorite is the tribal tune "Afro - We".  I'm not sure I would shell out the big bucks for this one, but it's rarity and puzzling back story make it worth a mention.
