The ever excellent Soundway Records follow up on their popular 'Nigeria Special' and 'Ghana Soundz' volumes with a double cd of 33 original, obscure cuts of 70's Ghanaian highlife, rock and soul! Packaged quite beautifully as a 44 page hardback booklet with extensive notes and photos, some serious crate diggin in warehouses, shops and private collections occured to bring you these gems that have never been re-issued before!

Needless to say, this is highly recommended!!
