A.B. Crentsil – Abrokyiri Abrabo
Persco 1986

A.B. Crentsil, voorkant

Het was weer eens tijd voor wat Ghanese highlife. We hadden
ooit een van zijn platen met de Sweet Talks. A.B. Crentsil is terug
vandaag met een veel latere productie. Eerlijk gezegd vind ik niet
al zijn werk even interessant maar dit in Londen opgenomen album
klinkt goed. Vanzelfsprekend geen idee over de inhoud maar
de sound is gewoon lekker. Geef hem een kans en luister..

It was time for some Ghanaian highlife. We had one of his records
with the Sweet Talks once. A.B. Crentsil is back today with a much
later production. To be honest I don’t think all his work is equally
interesting but this album which was recorded in London sounds
nice. As usual I’ve got no idea about the message brought
but it just sounds good. Give it a chance and listen..

    Thanks Moos. The drum machines/keyboards and funk (though many dig it) led to the downfall of highlife.

    Thanks Moos for this LP but I can’t extract from the file #4. It seems that the files are corrupted. Could you check please?

      I downloaded the file myself but can’t find any error, try again maybe..

    Sax and trombone are especially interesting and good sounding; who is this “Riami” on trombone? Wonderful solos here!
