SJOB Movement's 'Friendship Train' was the second LP by the group and one which saw the band rise to new heights. It's a masterpiece of African music with fluid afro beat grooves and spaced out Moog synthesizer sounds.
 
Here is an excerpt from the liner notes written and researched by Uchenna Ikonne:
 
"Prince Bola Agbana might hardly be the most immediately recognisable name in the constellation of Nigerian music stars, but for a significant portion of the last half-century he laboured in the shadows, dutifully serving as one of the key movers in its development. An in-demand session musician. An early and respected exponent of funk. A catalyst in the retrofit of juju into a modern pop genre. Most of all, though, he is recognised as the founder, leader, drummer and principal vocalist of the SJOB Movement.
 
"SJOB: Sam, Johnnie, Ottah, Bola. For a moment in the mid-1970s, they were le dernier cri in modern Nigerian music, representing the next step in the evolution of afro rhythms, and a new paradigm for the band economy. Their first album, 1976's 'A Move in the Right Direction', was a minor sensation and was swiftly followed by 'Friendship Train' in 1977. Then it appeared that the Movement stopped moving, and SJOB disappeared from the scene."
