Do you have by any chance Bopol’s Serrez Ceinture? Unfortunately, I lost mine.

this is a gem…thanks.
Today is Ghana’s 59th Independence Day … And songs like these brings to memory, the good old days. I wasn’t born then but I do hear a lot of these songs playing in the background of old documentaries of Ghana after independence on 6th March 1957 …. The golden years … Cheers to Ghana on her 59th birthday
..what a nice coincidence Kwabena, I must admitt I didn’t realise..
Thank you very much for posting this (and the rest of the stuff), it’s incredibly good.
Sweet sounds of goodness. Thanks.
Just forgot to include Geranr by Pepe Kalle. I apologize about that
Turns out I have had this for a while, but your version has better sound. I really do wish some enterprising record executive would assembly the best sounding versions of so much fantastic highlife and other great music from diverse cultures on the continent, but I suppose that’s asking for far too much, isn’t it?
Thanks, Moos, for helping out ever so much in keeping this music alive.
