14th Anniversary Post
Ndokwa Nº 1, Highlife King
General Franco Lee Ezute and his Harmony Kings Int. Band
Late Egwuenu Osonye
EM Records 1994

Today we celebrate our fourteenth anniversary with you and
an album by Franco lee Ezute and his Harmony Kings Int. Band.
My choice was inspired by Jillem’s post at HTD yesterday. A few
links point to other records. On side one of this elpee we sadly
find some nasty pops, a shame, but I still wanted to post it, such
nice music. This album from 1994 must be one of (if not) his latest
records, age 55 years. Franco Lee Ezute only became 64. Quite
a lot of information about him on Bandcamp. Enjoy listening ..

Vandaag vieren we de 14de verjaardag van de Global Groove met
jou en met deze plaat van Franco Lee Ezute and his Harmony Kings
Int. Band. De keuze is geïnspireerd door Jillem’s post op HTD gis-
teren. Enkele links wijzen je naar andere platen. Op de eerste kant
van dit album vinden we helaas een paar hinderlijke ‘pops’, ik wilde
hem toch posten, zulke fijne muziek. Deze plaat uit 1994 is een van
(zoniet) z’n laatste, op 55 jarige leeftijd. Hij werd slechts 64. Aardig
wat info over Franco Lee vinden we op Bandcamp, luister ..

    Thanks a lot Moos. Great discover for me. I love this style that is close of Etsakor in my opinion. I’ve grab all I could on the Global groovers and on Jillem’s Tunnel Dive! Waooh !
    By the way happy birthday to you and I will never stop to say how important is your work, and how great spirit it is to do it for free and to let in their sad hate or jealousy all the bad guys around !
    Hope to see you one day in Utrecht (where I have friends), drinking beer, smoking weed.
