C.K. Mann & His Carousel 7 - Funky Highlife

Lovely deep Afrobeat from Ghana's 70s Highlife period. First side is funkier and has been comp'd a few times but the second side is much softer; after several listens it really grabbed me. The record is a bit rough but there are no skips.

Great album! Thanks for posting. Read about it a couple days ago and since I will most likely never find this record in East Tennessee you doing me a huge favor. Hopefully I'll find it someday.

Thanks Karl, enjoy! It's a rough copy but it's all I could get my own grubby mits on :) It's a shame that no one has reissued this yet, such a hot record. -DJ Bylamplight

Thanks a lot. I'm from Ghana myself and knew C.K. personally. I remember asking him about this record back in the 90s and even he didn't have a copy, lol. He's passed on now and I miss him dearly.
