City Boys International Band – Merefre No
Diram Recordings 1982

City Boys International, front

Here’s another lp by the black chinese. Obuoba J.A. Adofo
and his City boys were here a few times before and gained
quite an audiance. They are one of the most popular guitar
driven highlife groups of the era together with among others,
Nana Ampadu and the African Brothers, the Ashanti Bros.
and Alex Konadu’s band. The lp’s got a couple of scratches
but not too serious, it’s a recommender all together..

  1. The City Boys are always welcome here, but I’m afraid we’re a long ways from Amstelveen. I did stay there for about 6 months when an exchange student back in 1971, and again briefly in 2006: a great community, with more cultural activity than in almost any group of US cities 3 times the size, Moos. We’re lucky here if the local arbiters of the arts bring in Amadou and Mariam once a decade, and call it “highlife.” Yeah, right.

  2. for a moment I thought you had given up or ran out of Ghanaian highlife music… this surely makes up for the wait …. a million thanks Moos

  3. Thanks a lot Moos for this great LP, City Boys are one of my favorite bands! In the future, can you post the rare albums “in Nigeria vol.2” and “Asubonten” if you have them?

  4. You post interesting content here. Your blog deserves much bigger
    audience. It can go viral if you give it initial boost, i know useful service that can help you, just
