Review

Here lie the deepest foundations of highlife ever curated. Researched with passion and attention to detail by Dr Markus Coester, this not only traces the popular Nigerian and Ghanaian genre to its earliest roots (Fela Kuti's earliest recordings are on here - never released in over 50 years!) but also its global footprint as the sound and its creators floated between London and Lagos for recording sessions and creative free-for-alls. Complete with detailed notes, photos and classic adverts of the era, this is the ultimate highlife time capsule that keeps on giving. Superb as always from Soundway.
