The story behind this ear treating release is below
BBE went on another crate-digging journey and found the original producer Reindorf Nana Oppong and the original master tapes were dusted off, transferred to digital. In the process of this, even un-released material was discovered on the tapes, which makes this a rather special package. “Nana Love - Disco Documentary Full Of Funk” is one special journey through Afro Disco & Boogie in the late 70s, and we at BBE can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed!!!
Release blurb goes like this...
Though the iconic imagery of Disco feels distinctly tied to the United States, the style had a wide-reaching influence that made it’s way to Africa. While Africa was already no stranger to the pulsing rhythms of funk, Afro-beat, and highlife, the rise of disco added a slick sheen to the music, with musicians from all over the continent incorporating elements of the genre into their sounds. Would there ever have been a Studio 54 in Ghana in late 70s, these would have been the recordings that would have packed the dance floor with their deep root in Disco, Soul & Funk! An album recorded in the late 70s packed full of legendary musicians such as Harry Mosco and many more… to be re-discovered 35 years after it’s initial vinyl release as a private press.
A Disco Documentary Full Of Funk proves that it stands the test of time by sounding as fresh and original as any other sought-after Disco / Soul Funk LP from the West coast of Africa in the late 70s.
