This steamin' album is the first in Mr Bongo's 'Classic African Recordings' series. 'Funky Highlife', dating from the early '70s, appeared on the Essiebons label, run by Dick Essilfe Bondzie. According to him the album could have been a massive hit in Ghana, but the vinyl factories ran out of vinyl because of Ghana's economic downturn, as a result of which the demand for the record could not be met. C.K. Mann was known for blending authentic African music with European influences. He was also inspired by Latin American music and created a style all of his own. He became the king of highlife in Ghana in 1971, when he released the record 'Nimpa Rebre', with vocals from Pat Thomas and Kofi Yankwon. 'Funky Highlife' represents a fusion of highlife and soul. The best-known track, 'Asafo
Beesuon', is a killer multi-layered funk medley and is over 13 minutes long. Highly recommended to all fans of Afrofunk sounds and vibes.

Also available: FUNKY HIGHLIFE (CD).
