Kwame Nkrumah with jewel Ackah
Safari and Classical Highlifes, ‘Yeredi Awu’
Pan African Records 1981

Hello groovers, at the last record fair in Utrecht I thought
I bought an album by Pat Thomas & Ebo Taylor but when
playing it, it turned out it had another record in the sleeve.
So what did we find ? I took the images from the web, this
is Kwame Nkrumah with Jewel Ackah and their record; Safari
and Classical Highlifes, ‘Yeredi Awu’. Both the lp’s are on Pan
African Records, this is PAR 001 and the one with Pat Thomas
& Ebo Taylor is PAR 004. I’ll try to reach the guy who sold it to
me and maybe get the right one later. For now, enjoy listening
to Kwame Nkrumah & Jewel Ackah ..

Hallo groevers, onlangs kocht ik op de platenbeurs in Utrecht
een lp van Pat Thomas & Ebo Taylor, althans dat dacht ik. Een-
maal thuis bleek er een heel andere plaat in de hoes te zitten.
..En wat vond ik ? Ik heb de afbeeldingen van het web gehaald,
dit is Kwame Nkrumah met Jewel Ackah en hun album; Safari
and Classical Highlifes, ‘Yeredi Awu’. Beide elpees zitten op het
Pan African label, dit is PAR 001 en degene met Pat Thomas &
Ebo Taylor is PAR 004. Ik zal de verkoper in kwestie proberen
te bereiken, misschien heeft hij het goede album ook nog.
Voor nu, veel luisterplezier met Kwame
Nkrumah & Jewel Ackah ..

tracks ;

01 – Yeredi awu

    Thanks a lot. I just wonder, are you sure this guy is from Ghana? Nkrumah is a Kenyan name, some of my wife`s family members have it.

    Kwame Nkrumah was dat ook niet de eerste president van Ghana? Ben benieuwd! Hij is aant neerladen. Weer bedankt, Moos!

        Kwame means that he is born on a saturday. Just like Kofi is born on friday and Kwaku on a wednesday. According to (many) Ghaneans your character is influenced by the day you are born. Wednesday means trouble (Kwaku the famoius Surinam marroon leader), Fridays are bright but a it boring (Kofi Anan). The record is great. Thanks Moos

          Nkrumah means 9th born. So both Kwame Nkrumahs were presumably the 9th child who was born on Saturday.

    Kwame Nkrumah (Pres) died in 1972 so he’d be worth listening to in 1981 (morbid interest) -he recorded a few speeches…
    Nice find Moos – I had the same ‘experience’ at a Paris flea market 30 years ago, thinking I’d found Orchestre Kiam 360.062 for 5 francs (whooping and dancing) only to discover another Afrique Dance LP inside – only took me 29 years to find the Kiam LP (£50 on disc*gs)
