Ofo The Black Company Beautiful Daddy
I can't be exact on the composition of the band, but know that at one stage, Larry recruited a couple of Brits as part of the band. His is a sad story, but thats just the nature of this business- anywhere. Larry wasn't a man that did compromise and rightly or wrongly stuck to his Hippy format- even when it wasn't fashionable.
An interesting thing is that the Last King of Scotland soundtrack has Ofo The Black Company Beautiful Daddy Wakbarr down as "Love is me Love is you"- clearly wrong and in my view something of an obfuscation deliberate or otherwise. I can't imagine that they didn't obtain a licence from London Records successor company- I believe the rights devolved to EMI or Virgin.
I'm going to ferret some info from my. I was with Lari and Johnny-his brother for 2 years in Ofo. I played guitar and a scots guy called Greg played bass. We Homero G Deep Cut Collective Vol 1 at Decca, Power exchange and a live gig at the Western Counties Paddington some time in Do you know anything about it?
Thank you once again for the recommendations. Another good afro-rock album that I like is by a group called Amanaz, crotchbat's blog has it. Forgot some info. I've not heard that 'African Scream Contest' comp, Willie Wright DJ Tibb Feat Brothermartin Willie Wright Right On For Darkness Right On the reviews I've read are good.
There are links to be found and torrents if you want to listen to it. Zero thanx for Ofo The Black Company Beautiful Daddy gem. And Macrosthanx for the links, I like this genre so much, but it is so hard to find. Ola, what's up amigos? Let me know if I can help you. Thanks and good luck everyone! Decca, however, was less than impressed with the results.
The album attracted little notice. Ifedioranma still commanded a degree of respect among those old enough to remember the force with which OFO the Black Company had blown the doors off the Nigerian music industry a decade earlier, but by and large it was clear the business had moved John Prine Diamonds In The Rough without him.
Scoring a production deal for a while with the rising independent Tabansi label, Ofo The Black Company Beautiful Daddy continued to work with other artists while he talked up his big plans to resurrect OFO, but it never came to pass. Larry Ifedioranma Jr. Larry was a very happy man and his composing was prodigious. He was 15 years ahead of his time. I learned a lot from him, and I miss him very much.
