V.A. - HIGHLIFE ON THE MOVE: SELECTED NIGERIAN & GHANAIAN RECORDINGS FROM LONDON & LAGOS 1954-66 (3LP & 7")


"In many ways this compilation is a prequel of sorts to Soundway's groundbreaking Nigeria & Ghana Special compilations, telling the early story of modern highlife's foundation & formulation. It traces the music from West Africa to London, adding elements of jazz, mambo and calypso along the way and paving the way for the afro sounds of the 1970s. Accompanied by a 12 page CD vinyl, the notes by Dr. Coester include rare photographs, labels and advert reproductions alongside some stunning and very rare recordings." (label info) 180gram vinyl, in gatefold sleeve. with bonus 7" and download code
