City Boys Band of Ghana

City Boys, voorkant

City Boys

City Boys, label a-side

De zwarte chinees is terug, hij was hier reeds op zeven eerdere
gelegenheden. Dit is de achtste maal dat hij ons bezoekt dus.
Dit plaatje was opgenomen in Nigeria zoals de titel reeds deed
vermoeden. J.A. Adofo is de grote leider van de City Boys, één
van de meest populaire Ghanese highlife bands op deze pagina.
De hoes en het label zijn het niet eens over a-kant en b-kant,
ik ben uitgegaan van het label..

The black chinese is back, he visited us on seven earlier occasions
so this is encounter number eight. J.A. Adofo is the great leader
of the City Boys, one of the most popular Ghanaian highlife bands
here at the global Groove. As the title already suggests this one
was recorded in Nigeria, volume two. Cover and label do not
agree on which is a-side and which b-side, I believe the label.
If it’s the other way around, someone let me know..

titels ;

05 – Adobe asema
06 – Me yaee fi mefie

  1. Nice! This will be a lovely listening for the bank holiday.
    Do you by any chance have City boys in Nigeria Vol. 1
    The one I got from the other blogspot you advised isn’t of the best quality.
    I guess am spoiled with the quality of music you provide 🙂
    Thanks Moos.

  2. Thanks, Moos! My wife and I went to a Ghanean restaurant a few days ago, and though the cook/owner knew CK Mann’s earlier highlife music, she’d never heard of The City Boys. We played back in our hotel room some of the albums of theirs that you’ve uploaded through the years. Great stuff.

  3. Moos, I dont know how I missed this one… when I watch I yearn for more and when I dont watch, I miss what I yearn for…. the suspense keeps me coming back… you are a magician and I never know what trick you are bringing next…keep it up
