Okukuseku International Band of Ghana
Okukuseku ’82’ Chartbuster
Muomaife Groovy Records 1982

Chief Koffi Sammy is back today with this 1982 Chartbuster.
At Discogs I did not find it. The album opens a little messy
and has a few tiny pops along the way. Still, it is a nice
contribution to the list of their records so far. Always
a pleasure listening to another Okukuseku ..

Chief Koffi Sammy is terug vandaag met deze Chartbuster
uit 1982. Op Discogs heb ik hem niet gevonden. De plaat
opent ietwat rommelig en ook gaandeweg heeft ie enkel
kleine bumps. Evenzogoed is het een welkome toevoeging
aan de lijst met albums die we al van hem hadden. Luister
weer met plezier naar Okukuseku ..

  1. Love when you have the old school Ghanainan classic Highlife albums, they always make me happy when I listen to them. Thank you for these
    super rare classic Ghanainan Highlife albums.

  2. Globalgroovers you know i use to download ur New Highlife and Nigeria music any time New Album use to come out on globalgroovers. Please if you have Raphael Amarabem Were Were Album put it in Globalgroovers thanks God bless you.

  3. Good day Moos is me chisom once again pls is not that i like disturbing u Globalgroovers is just that i like Highlife Music but i want Moos to post Ali Chukwuma ife oma di Nma Album pls Globalgroovers as this year is coming to an End God bless you.

  4. Moos, hello. I’m following up on the comments re the ClickRepair software. Over many years I have ripped 2500 albums, 400 singles and most recently, 300 classical albums I picked up cheap from the local tip shop. I always clean them before ripping but I always end up with pops & clicks. I can happily ignore them because listening to the music is the important factor. But the classical albums seem to have more than their share! I suppose I should have done so before but I never thought of looking for software to remove them until I saw ClickRepair mentioned on your site recently. I downloaded the software and tried it with the default settings. I was stunned with the results. Removing the pops & clicks then reveals the worn grooves, rumble(?) and other imperfections but c’est la vie. The software comes with a 21 day trial but one cannot buy a license at the moment because the author passed recently. Amazing how individuals can impact so many lives! Anyway it works on wav files only. You mentioned this album was noisy so I thought I’d try the ClickRepair magic on it (and Anibal Velasquez y su Conjunto La Bomba). I converted the files from mp3 to wav using CDex, ran ClickRepair and re-mp3-ed them and the results are in a file on my website https://www.westhamstats.info/Music1.zip and https://www.westhamstats.info/Music2.zip Unfortunately the mp3 tags are gone! I have found a workaround for the 21 day trial until a license is obtainable. There is a ‘batch conversion’ option available but I wasn’t sure whether I could fix all my rips in that time period.Presumably you can see my email address in this post if you want me to do anything to help you. Thanks for all the rips! John

    • Thank you very much for your effort John.
      Personally I do not mind a little distortion,
      sometimes however it is a bit too much.
      For me it is a lot of trouble to work all
      my files with clickRepair. I’m gonna leave it
      the way it is. You can clean whatever file you like
      of course. Have a good one John and thanks again ..

      • Thanks. I totally understand. I will leave your rips untouched as you’ve given them to the world! I’m retired now so have grown up with scratches and pops on the record. All part of the listening pleasure! But ClickRepair does have some quirks. I enjoy English folk music (being from England originally) and ran it over an album Morris On from 1972 with lots of unaccompanied vocals. It destroyed vocals by John Kirkpatrick but left vocals by Shirley Collins untouched. I then checked the authors notes which said “If the settings are too severe, causing too many false detections. Instruments such as cymbals and brass, and certain types of singing, are among the more difficult music types, and may give rise to such problems”. But still a useful piece of software! John

    • I do not have that album Chisom !!

      ..really don’t like you telling me what you want to download.
      the Global Groove is not a jukebox, you can kindly ask if I have
      the album you’re looking for. Further it is just waiting to see
      what I post, reggae, cumbia, son cubano, rock, soul, jazz, blues,
      soukous, benga, semba, lautari, forró, samba, bossa nova, mbaqanga,
      bolero, merengue, vallenato, aguinaldo, salsa, ska, rocksteady,
      …not just igbo highlife .. do you see what I mean .. ?
