Afrofunk heat repressed! Leave it to the good dudes at Voodoo Funk and Academy Records to dig up something as rare as Gyedu-Blay Ambolley's Simigwa and hook you up with an official reissue, remastered from the original tapes. Originally released in 1975 on the Ghanian Essiebons label (pretty much impossible to find in the field), Simigwa contains scorching afrobeat grooves filled with raw vocals, fuzzy Hammond, hot horns, and crazy percussion to work the dancefloor. Check "This Hustling World," "Akoko Ba," "Fa No Dem Ara," and "Toffie" for a taste of what we're working with. Produced by Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and Ghanian music legend Ebo Taylor. 6 tracks in all with full pic sleeve reproduction. Limited to 1500 copies!
