Editorial Reviews

(LP + MP3) George Danquah's Hot and Jumpy is one of the most collectable funky gems to come out of the incredible music scene in Ghana during the 70's. To many collectors, this record seems to have come out of nowhere. It is the only known album by this New Edubiase native. He appears to have arrive out of thin air, recorded one of the funkiest albums in African history, and then vanished. However, this isn't entirely true. Danquah played with many of Ghana's top musicians all throughout his career. Before recording this album, he toured all over West Africa playing in such bands as Benya Beats, Blue Monks, and the legendary Uhuru Dance Band, one of today's most popular artists from this scene thanks to some wonderful compilations in recent years. He honed his skills playing with some of the country's greatest musicians and arrangers. Hot and Jumpy is the culmination of many years of hard work and musical exploration. Hot and Jumpy offers up ''New Dimensions in African Hustle! Reggae! Native! Soul!'' It ranges from monster funk bombs like Just For A Moment and Araba Soso Wo Ndzema to super mellow reggae cuts like African Reggae (which pretty much breaks any stereotypes about Ghanaian Reggae). Why Worry - Let's Do Highlife is a refreshingly funky take on the classic sound of Ghana. This fully licensed proper '1=1 reissue' is an accurate representation of the original. Each LP package is hand assembled, hand numbered and placed in a resealable dust bag. As always, each copy comes with an MP3 downloard card good for the entire album.
