Posted on April 20, 2010 by Moos. Sunny Adé and his Green Spot Band made a series of 4 albums called The Master Guitarist. They were recorded in the famous EMI Studio’s at Abbey Road London and this LP is ‘The Best of Sunny Adé Master Guitarist’. I am not sure but if we believe the text on the back, written by some former owner, it could well be from 1973. Logically, we may conclude it is not from after 1973. The 4 albums are a collection of his best songs in the first 5 years of his fame. 1 Ija pari 2 Challenge Cup 1967 3 Olalekan salami 4 O le ku 5 Afojudi 6 Ibi lekeleke ti nf’oso 7 Late Alao ( Baba Oja ) 8 A nw’oba 9 Adura wa 10 Egbe igbimo 11 Sewele 12 Adeleke Oshinjinrin.
