    This is a great LP. City Boys are one of my favourite Ghanaian bands. They are still active, very much in demand to play at funerals. Here’s a video of Adofo & City Boys 2 years ago playing a concert in Ghana.

    Thank you very much for this New Year gift! I grew up in Igboland listening to this great album and have been looking for a good copy till now. He is indeed the “Black Chinese” by his talent!

    This might well be my favorite highlife album. Last night I came across an episode of the old Ghanaian TV Show, Osofo Dadzie Cantanta, which guest-stared J.A. Adofo himself and served as an 1 1/2-hour long series of music videos for this album. It is available at the following link, starting about 1 hour and 5 minutes into the video:
