No Accommodation For Lagos by Tony Allen with Afrika 70 was originally released in 1977 and is widely regarded as an essential afrobeat recording. Tony Allen took afrobeat in an afro-funk direction fired by the frustration of the turbulent times the band were living in and passion for music that just had to be made.
