Hand picked records important to the history of Soul Strut.
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.
