Etubom Rex Williams & His Nigerian Artistes - Etubom Rex Williams & His Nigerian Artistes


  • £25.99

Nigerian trumpeter and bandleader Etubom Rex Williams' debut album is a gently upbeat and entrancing record. Originally released by Philips Records in 1973, it is reissued here for the very first time in limited-edition pressing of 500 copies. 
Etubom Rex Williams occupies the genuine space of legend of Nigerian Highlife. His incredible professionalism, vast body of work and huge personality established him as a veritable force of the genre quite early in his career - like another teenage prodigy of Highlife Music, Sir Victor Uwaifo, Williams straddles the intergenerational gap between the old masters of Highlife such as Bobby Benson, E.C.Arinze, Inyang Henshaw, and Dr Victor Olaiya, and the latter generation of Eddy Okweddy, Orlando Owoh, Tunji Oyelana, Eric Akaeze, Osayomore Joseph et al.
