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. 1966 – 1971 ) Remarkable is the fact the LP contains 12 songs that stand alone. We are used to find his albums with one or at most.

King Sunny Ade who’ sound is a fusion of the traditional Yoruba Talking Drum, a guitar with the Juju Music; kicked off his music career with Moses Olaiya’s –Baba Sala– highlife band known as the Federal Rhythm Dandies. King Sunny Ade was the lead guitar player for the band around 1964. In 1967, he left the Federal Rhythm Dandies to form his own group, The Green Spots. The band changed their name twice first The African Beats and then The Golden Mercury. Apparently, it happened due to the music business as of that time.
King" Sunny Adé (born Sunday Adeniyi, September 22, 1946) is a popular performer of Yoruba Nigerian jùjú music and a pioneer of modern world music. Adé was born to a Nigerian royal family in Ondo, thus making him an Omoba of the Yoruba people. His father was a church organist, while his mother was a trader. Adé left grammar school in Ondo under the pretense of going to the University of Lagos. There, in Lagos, his mercurial musical career started. Sunny Adé’s musical sound has evolved from the early days. His career began with Moses Olaiya’s Federal Rhythm Dandies, a highlife band. He left to form a new band, The Green Spots, in 1967
Juju Music is the 1982 major label debut of Nigerian jùjú band King Sunny Adé and His African Beats. It represented the first worldwide release for Adé, who was already established in his native Nigeria as its "biggest musical draw and juju music's reigning monarch". The album was a critical and commercial success, peaking at on Billboard's "Pop Albums" chart.
Born to Nigerian royalty, Ade began his music career in the '60s, became a superstar at home in the '70s and set out to conquer the world in the '80s with his huge band of Juju warriors. His early '80s recordings for Mango (Juju Music and Synchro System) are still regarded as crucial albums. Leading a large percussion-heavy band, Ade contrives magical guitar phrases that are both fluid and abrupt while his caressing tenor voice calls forth a powerful response
