Description

The 3rd Generation band was formed in the late 70's led by ‘Rockson’, who was a soldier at the time. The band recorded only six tracks, all for Essiebons, including the two featured here – 'Because of Money' and 'Obi Ye Saa Wui'.

Our man Gary Johnson bought a 7” from a dealer in New York on digging trip some years ago. He knew ‘Because of Money’, and was delighted to find that the B side was just as strong.

‘Because of Money’ was originally released on Essiebons ‎– EB 398 7” and was featured on Soundway’s excellent ‘Ghana Soundz’ compilation. The record is extremely rare – yet to make an appearance on either Discogs or even Popsike.

This reissue is a replica 7”, including the picture paper sleeve, carefully restored by Andrew Edwards.
