Description

Hot Casa present a reissue of K. Fimpong & Super Complex Sounds' Ahyewa Special, originally released in 1975. Essential highlife and Afro funk from Ghana! The legendary K. Fimpong's fantastic rare second album recorded in 1975 at Ghana Films Studios. K. Frimpong was born on July 22nd, 1939 at Ofoase in the Ashanti-Akim district and entered music right after elementary school by joining Star de Republic. Later he was in Oko's band after which he went to K. Gyasy's band where he worked for more than six years. As a prolific songwriter and singer, here's the reissue of his second album, a modern fusion of highlife and the traditional beat called "Ahyewa". The excellent background is given by the Super Complex Sounds band which makes the Ahyewa beat abundantly, danceable, and colorful. Originally produced on the Ofo Bros label led by the Ofori brothers in Kumasi, these two side-long recordings were divided into six themes per side on the original release, each delivering a deep, 16-minute long hi-life trance. A must have vinyl of percussive Afro funk and modern highlife for all the music connoisseurs. Fully licensed by the Alhadji Kwame Frimpong Family.Remastered by Frank Merritt at The Carvery Pressed on Replika format.
