I have to admit I am not very good with religion. Over the years I have come to the conclusion I am just not the believing, the submissive or the worshipping kind.
But should I ever - for reasons I can not imagine at this moment - get the urge to repent, it is very likely I will turn to Islam.
For one thing, they have better music than the competition.
And with this post I am presenting some very convincing evidence of this thesis. Yes, you have guessed it: it's another album by that master of Apala music, Haruna Ishola. From a time (mid-1970s) when he had not yet, I assume from the absence of the "Alhadji" adjective, done his duty as a muslim to travel to Mecca.
This is another great lp, and again a monument of African music. My favourite part of this record is the part on side B when after about 9 minutes the chorus seems to get disengaged from the lead vocal. It may seem like an imperfection, but it's just the kind of imperfection that makes this music perfect......
