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.

Prince A.E. Amgbaduba and his Okrika Amazuo's Band of Nigeria

For the next selection on the Highlife Turntable, I have selected the track Apaingolo, by Prince A.E. Amgbaduba and his Okrika Amazuo's Band of Nigeria.

I have a few releases by Prince Amgbaduba including his masterpiece The Highlife Specialist.  While not everything is great every once in a while he hits a song out of the park.  There are so many parts of this song that work for me.  The drumming at the beginning, the spacey guitar work throughout the song and the lilting vocals are all great.  I also liked the horn break that starts around the 4.15 mark. I don't know much about the artist, so any information would be appreciated.

I hope you like the music


For those interested in hearing more I did see a download of one of Amgbaduba LP's Boyfriend on Amazon
