    1. I do not own the album and unfortunately also cannot find it somewhere in www, therefore I cannot offer a download link ...

  2. dl it here

  3. You can also get a 24Bit 96KHz FLAC vinyl rip including scans here:
    Or a 16Bit 44.1kHz version here:

    Not my rip, I found it on the net and I really wish I could thank the person who did it , but I guess it is one of the countless unsung heroes who share the most amazing records - as this is one of the most amazing afrobeat blogs around, it seems like a natural home.

    Let's keep our fingers crossed that another kind soul shares his 1986 'Sensation' album, which curiously has the same Ijere track on it - I did wonder at first if it was an Anglicised version of the Odejimjim album but the times of the other tracks are different so clearly that is not the case.

    For those like me, who searched for the album based on the Ijere track from the Soundway disco compilation released a few years back, believe me, you will not be disappointed.
