Let me ask you something. If you saw that LP cover above, would you give it a test run? Of course you would. Even if it meant an extra click? Yeah, that's a whole lotta effort you're going to have to put forth. Aquarium Drunkard posted it, and seeing as how they disable direct links, you will have to muster that clicking wherewithal. De Frank was, or maybe still is, a percussionist from Ghana, and the LP is from 1976. I happen to dig it, in a weird vibe way. My Ghanaian music appetite whetted, I took a look at Radio Diffusion International, and they had a handful from Ghana, my favorite of the bunch was "Hammatan" by Tall Emma and His Skippers.
Further searching turned up a sixteen song mix over at Voodoo Funk, of records acquired in Ghana by host Frank Gossner. If you're unfamiliar with Voodoo Funk, just go over there and dig around. Gossner was/is so passionate about African music that he actually moved there for a while to hunt for records and still goes back annually. He reissues some of the records periodically, when he can actually find ex-band members to license them from. Read some of his older posts. It's a hoot to live vicariously through his past record hunting sojourns, especially since some of the stuff he uncovers may not ever be reissued.
