Prepare yourself for new directions in Afro-funk. During the 1980s, Ghanaian bandleader Gyedu-Blay Ambolley began to experiment with electronic instruments, and the result was a potent cocktail of highlife, funk, exploratory synths and righteous vocals, the sound of a restless genius intent on pushing the traditional sounds of highlife into a brave new future. This release contains four of Ambolley's hardest-driving excursions to the outer limits of eighties funk. Limited to 1000 copies, one time pressing, so order fast!
