Happy Independence Day, Ghana!






























Today, March 6th, marks the 55th anniversary of Ghana's independence from British colonial rule.  Let us celebrate with this classic highlife album by B.B. Collins, featuring master guitarist Sammy Cropper and the beautiful lead vocals of Baffour Kyei.  

Enjoy!

  5. I couldnt help but come back to testify how good this album sounds....to me, this is the dream team band, when u have one half of cubano fiesta/visavis(kwaku kung fu & sammy cropper) & another half comprising of Maringue on Bass & Kojo Akwaboah on keyboard... Maringue & Kojo Akwaboah did an excellent work together on Alex konadu's "Akwadaa wesewa" album which can be found on global groove....Kojo Akwaboah did an excellent keyboard piece on Akwaboa's "Meye Meye" album too and a lot others....dont know if the 2 Akwaboa relate.... Maringue is crazy on Bass & is quite good with other instruments...Baffour Kyei is a good vocalist...BB Collins did a good job by bringing such a team together...and Osibisaba has done a great job by making this gem available once more... Thanks

  9. I've simply been downloading and marveling in the great music on your site for several hours, now. You've got fantastic taste, and all this Ghanaian Highlife is going to keep both my wife and I happy in the car on trips in the future, as well as around the house. A shame you've pretty much stopped the blog, but I sincerely appreciate you keeping it alive so others might find this music, learn about it, and enjoy it.
