Ghana: The Guitar And Gun/Highlife Music. Many clubs, music centers, and studios were forced to close, but somehow Bokoor Studio was able to keep the tapes rolling, thanks mostly to John Collins, who recorded and produced the tracks found on The Guitar and Gun. Originally released on vinyl in two volumes, this digital reissue collects most (but not all) of the cuts found on the initial releases. Highlights include the relaxed vocals and rolling percussion of Salaam And His Cultural Imani Group on "Moko Baba" and "Ekee Obi Le," which charmingly combine palm-wine music with a kind of jug band mentality.

Highlife became Ghana’s own music and provided the soundtrack to Independence. British military brass bands and US swing and jazz bands become popular when servicemen during World War II. It was played at upscale parties (hence ‘highlife’). A distinctive sound began to emerge with large multi-instrumental bands playing stomping rhythms backed up with a vibrant horn section and the clean electric guitar sound that characterises much of West Africa’s music. On the playlist: Odo Anigyina, Mee Bei Obada and Nkebo Baaya by ET Mensah & The Tempos.
