Another early star of juju music is Tunde Nightingale. I get the impression that little has been published about his career, because the article about him in the wikipedia is minimal to say the least.
Personally I have no idea how anyone can describe his voice as 'sonorous' or sounding like a nightingale (unless the nightingale is being strangled), but that doesn't mean I don't like his music. I especially like the way he plays his guitar. He has a very special melodious, soulful style of playing, which I suppose inspired others like Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey to follow in his footsteps.
This lp is a volume 2, and maybe this record posted by a Canadian blogger is the 'matching' volume 1. Both records are on the Take Your Choice label, and both appear to be undated.
If your wondering about the title of this post, listen to the lp. I am sure you'll be h-a-p-p-y too!
