Welcome to the Highlifeturntable. The purpose of this blog is to provide a way for people to listen to rare highlife music from Ghana and Nigeria. I plan to post tracks from my private collection along with a little commentary on what I know about the artist and what I like about the LP.

atta frimpong

For my first selection I have chosen a song by atta frimpong and his top stars called odo mu nkaebo off a tinpoum release. The release has a number of famous ghanaian stars including such heavy hitters as: eric agyeman on guitar, nana tuffour on organ, tommy king on first trumpet, and recording supervision provided by atakora manu. Its got a classic mid 70's spacey ghanaian pop feel.

See what you think and welcome to the highlife turntable.


  1. Very nice!

  2. Great tune!

    Would you mind posting an image of the 45? That would really be appreciated, too!

    Thank you very much for sharing this great music!
