K Frimpong & His Cubano FiestasK Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas ... CD
Continental, 1977. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
The great second album from Ghana's K. Frimpong – backed by the group Vis-a-Vis (though billed in the title as his Cubano Fiestas) – a stunning blend of Ghanian Highlife music and rawer Afro Funk & soul! A few K. Frimpong numbers appeared on some of our favorite African compilations of the late 90s & 00s – but this original album from 1977 has remained rare. K. Frimpong sings and he's backed up by the fairly large Vis-A-Vis players, but they deliver a pretty tight groove – drums, congas and other percussion, trumpet and sax, some really soulful electric guitar, some piano, and occasional waves of spacey synth. Amazing stuff! Includes "Hwehwe Mu Na Yi Wo Mpena", "Asaase Yi So", "Awisa" and the side-long "Adama Nana (Medley)". CD

K Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas/Ebo TaylorKyenkyen Bi Adi M'awu/Heaven ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Sweet organ and guitar do a mighty nice dance together at the start of "Kyenkyen Bi Adi" – then these wicked beats come in, all snapping and syncopated – while horns carve out this nicely exotic vibe over the top! "Heaven" is a tune that certainly lives up to its name – with a heavenly groove way down at the bottom – as organ, bass, and drums bubble together to great this great ground-up approach to Afro Funk! 7-inch, Vinyl record
