This is Ghanaian highlife at its most chill. Yamoah is one of the greatest highlife singers ever. Yamoah is not very well known outside of Ghana. Those who are into collecting music from West Africa will certainly have come across some of his recordings though.
Vols 1-4 can be found in the cassette stalls in Kantamanto market, down in central Accra.
Best of Yamoah’s Band Vol. 1 is one of my all-time favorites (and its three other vols). Guitar highlife with that incredibly far behind the beat feel to it. The almost wailing vocal harmonies, laced with what sound like hymnal cadences…sweet.
