Mighty Flames – Sweet Love
The following is an excerpt from the back of the sleeve.
“In the history of muzik in the Country, MIGHT FLAMES of the METALIK FUNK cult are amongst the top bracket of funk bands.
As a nucleus of the former FLAMES Funk Band of Port Harcourt, they shortly realised the joy in independence and decided to find their own direction while still tightly together.
A world like ours is bound to have changes in the different spheres of life which is more noticeable in the musical scene. It is change that has given birth to this musical offspring – The MIGHTY FLAMES of the METALIK FUNK cult – Metalik of course because of the lightness and heaviness of their muzik which is pulsating with strong rhythmic vibrations that always earned them recognition wherever they performed live.
The result of long years of togetherness is this brilliant debut album titled SWEET LOVE. The opening numbers on both sides are simply great masterpieces.
The Music is beautiful – RIDE ON” – Flint Oto 1977
