About this item

The mighty Soundway continue their recent repress programme with the label's highly sought after, very first vinyl release, "Ghana Soundz". This dazzling 2LP set is a must-have treasure trove for anyone with even a passing interest in Ghanaian highlife, afrobeat and funk. Two years in the making, "Ghana Soundz" delivers a eyewatering selection of 70s Afro-beat, funk and Afro-jazz fusion from Ghana, mostly all previously unreleased outside Africa. A cursory glance at the tracklist reveals winners by Marijata, Ebo Taylor, The African Brothers and Rob, but each and every track on this killer comp is worth the entry fee alone. The tracks are on an uptempo, dancefloor-aimed tip and stand up to anything released in Nigeria from the same era. I can't recommend this compilation highly enough!
