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.  


B.B. Collins & the Powerful Believers - Adjoa Abene


  1. It feels good to have u back...for a moment I thought this was the end of such a beautiful thing u started....keep them coming....very much appreciated

  2. Thanks. I love it

  3. Hi, Do you have this album:


    I would love to hear the complete songs!

  4. @anonymous
    Sorry I don't have that one, maybe the folks at highlife haven/high life turntable do though...

  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

  6. Kwabena,
    Thanks for the fantastic comment. That's how I feel when I listen to this old music!

  7. its been a while since u put anything up recently, but its worth letting u know that our celebrated highlife legend, Dr. K. Gyasi of the noble kings has passed on...may his soul rest in peace (http://www.ameyawdebrah.com/highlife-legend-dr-k-gyasi-passes-on/)

  8. long time - my favorite album, always good to hear

  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.

  10. Late but never too late to say Thank you very much for sharing such awesomeness, itching to try this, i'm gonna make my way through your archives to download every available album around here, can't let such posts disappear with time & considering the art's quality presented here, it's definitely worth it, Much appreciation & respect for all your interest, time & effort you've spent creating this valuable blog. i hope you pop into with a new article in the near future, Long life buddy, Best regards.
