Album Review

Ghana Special [coll] – [Sound Way]

Max Level   3/15/2010   CD, International

This is some real deal stuff–a blast for fans of African music. 33 songs, mostly upbeat and energetic, with electric guitars, keyboards, horns, vocals, and incessant percussion, just the way it should be. The material was culled from a period of musical change in Ghana, when local dance-club bands were playing fewer covers of imported soul and pop hits, and more of an Afro-centric sound that represented their own culture. Extensive liner notes give info on the artists, the record labels, the nightclubs, the whole scene. When I saw bands listed with names such as The Barbecues and The Sweet Talks, I knew this was going to be good.
