Details / Info

Amazing collection of early 60s Nigerian and Ghanean tracks firstly released -often as 10inches and 7inches- in the Decca then Philips West African series, and some are very hard to find ! Featured here are most of the High-Life genre heroes and pioneers.
Original UK pressing. Sleeve has important age wear and is quite dirty at back (w/ writings and shop's stamp). Some pen writings on labels. Record is covered with scuffs and marks, looks very bad but does play much better than it looks ! Deeper marks on track B1 otherwise plays mostly as decent VG copy. Listen to the soundclips!
