Highlife Hits – Various Artists
Philips P 13450 L



Being a record collector one knows times in which we do
not find a lot or we’re simply busy doing other things. One
also experience periods however in which we find so many
wonderful records there’s hardly enough time to listen to it
all. On those moments I use to store the records nicely on
category and alphabet so there is something to discover
in a later stage. This is how I stumbled upon this here
slice of Nigerian vinyl today. A sheer beauty you
better get and play straight away, enjoy doing so..

Soms koop je als vinyl verzamelaar een tijd lang niet veel,
gewoonweg omdat je druk bent met andere dingen of omdat
je niet zo veel tegen komt. Er zijn echter ook tijden dat je zo
veel moois vindt, dat je er nauwelijks tegenaan kunt luisteren.
Op zulke momenten zet je de platen netjes op categorie en op
alfabet in de kast en heb je later nog iets te ontdekken. Zo kwam
ik vandaag plots langs deze bijna vergeten elpee. Een beauty en
in top conditie. Luister snel, wat een buitenkansje weer..
