Highlife knew his golden era during the 50s and 60s in Ghana, but this late 1970 "special hi-life numbers" just sounds like in the old good time, when president Kwame Nkrumah used to promote it as a symbol of modern (pan)african expression.
Led by Stan Plange, who arranged the following track, Uhuru Dance Band is a big and experienced band, as proved by the horn and rhythm sections.
"Betu Me O Awow" highlife song is supposed to have Akan orgin (Akans is the majoritary ethnic group in Ghana and Ivory Coast, including Ashanti).
Produced by F. Hayfron and E.K. Royce.
