Release Date:04/14/2017;Notes:Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Finally repressed after nearly 10 years out of print, this is the seminal debut release from Soundway Records. Ghana Soundz was born out of an idea by compiler and Soundway founder Miles Cleret and led to a series of projects dedicated to Ghanaian music. Pounding rhythms, blaring horns and pumping vocals - the music featured is a document of a time forgotten when flares and Cuban heels strutted the streets and night-spots of Accra, the sizzling hot and humid capital of Ghana. Influenced as much by traditional rhythms and local highlife as by the music of Fela Kuti, James Brown and Santana, these tunes had almost become extinct. The music was collated by Miles Cleret who spent three painstaking years traveling the length and breadth of Ghana. The result was a treasure trove of Ghanaian highlife, Afrobeat and funk of which most had never been released outside of Africa and some tracks that had never even left the studio floor.;Special Attributes:GATEFOLD LP JACKET
