Canadoes Super Stars of Ghana

Canadoes, front

Today’s contribution starts out a bit crackly but the noise
doesn’t bother much. Canadoes appear on RAS

Two things, always nice to have a little puzzling to do,
label says it’s from 1981 and backsleeve says from 1982.
And then, front cover states it should be LIVE, but
it absolutely does not give me that impression,
what do you think ..?

You are simply the best, please do continue keeping the Ghana Highlife coming 😀 Canadoes for life, this is a rare LP recorded probably outside the studio in front of a live audience.<br /><br />Have a wonderful week!!!<br /><br />Ken

  4. I dont think this was recorded in front of a live audience as someone said since we dont hear any crowd feedback in any of the tracks as we do on some of Bob marley&#39;s true live cuts as an example…the few give and take times in the first medley(enowaa ko hene, ayikoo dum) is just mere band choreography among the band members which is common in a lot of albums that were recorded in studios as

  5. Hi Moos. I have a problem with the file. It seems that the track 1 is corrupted.

    Thank you.
