THE ORIGINAL LP!
Dan Boadi rose to prominence mid-70's, topping the national charts in his native Ghana with the Abrabo LP, which apparently "sold like apples". Dan decided to try his luck in the United States, arriving in Chicago in 1978. With little fanfare, he released Money is the Root of Evil in a limited run of 500 copies. The LP's two cuts, "Money is the Root of Evil" and "Play That Funky Music" launched the propulsive Afro-Beat of Nigeria's FELA KUTI into the majestic, psychedelic abandon of the American dance floor. At least that was the intention. What should have become a venerable Loft/Warehouse monster passed unnoticed.
Re-issue from early 2000's
"Money is The Root Of All Evil" popped up on the African Disco compilation, and has been re-released a couple times.
