Celestine Ukwu & His Philosophers National - Onwu Ama Eze [1974]

Woke up with this one in my mind. Celestine Ukwu's version of highlife could be as gentle as morning light, so it makes sense why it caught me early today. According to Google Translate, the title means "The King Died", but there's another track, "Ife uwa adi agwuagwu", on the same album that strikes me as a perfect description of Ukwu's delicate and sensitive sound. It translates to "Love of a Terrifying World".
