African Music – Various Artists
Phonogram 1983

I don’t know about you but I am a hopeless layman if it comes
to dealing with computers. If there is a problem I need to get
my system manager to fix it. At this moment I have an argument
with Winamp, it refuses to exercise my rippings. It took me quite
a detour to get the ripping done but pfffiew, I managed.
What have we got today? A collector that, to my surprise, was
released by Phonogram, a Dutch record company. The man who
compiled it, Roy Teysse, sure knew what he was doing. What a heap
of great artists he brought together here. The image of the frontcover
did not like to get registered, the shiny parts are a bit hard to capture
with camera. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Hello,
    Thank you for this great compilation album from The Netherlands. I’ve been looking for this LP for a long time. Classic Nigerian highlife at its best! What a gem!

  2. Great disk indeed. I have this one on a cd, bought around 18 yrs agoo, when i just met the lady who became my wife a while later. Because she was/is a Nigerian, i started looking for Nigerian music. Fell in love with her AND the music! And am still loving both!
    Greetings, Deejay Baobab – Belgium
