Incredible reissue of long sought-after Ghanaian disco album! Disco, funk and pop hits in the vein of fellow Ghanaian Kiki Gyan, and George Darko. Fully restored and remastered.
One of the most well-known disco and burger highlife artists of the time, Charles Amoah originally began his career as a drummer. Playing with Alex Kunadu’s band, as well as the Precious Jewels and even Nana Tuffour, he then moved to Germany in the early 80s.
His first album Sweet Vibration spawned several hits which went on to be released as separate singles,namely “Scratch My Back” and “Shake Your Body To The Beat”.
From the irresistible funk hooks of these singles, to the Lionel Richie-esque instrumentation of “Life’s Like Being In A Boxing Ring”, or the kraut-rock stylings of“Jungle Rock” - there is little doubt that the blend of disco, funk and highlife that was unique to the Ghanaian-German scene can be experienced in its full splendour on Sweet Vibration.
