King Bruce & The Black Beats GHANA
'Golden Highlife Classics' (RETRO13CD)  
15 memorable tracks from the 1950s and 1960s.

'Boy those days really were golden if you judge them by the warm and affectionate glow that emanates from this music. Their swing and jazz-influenced highlife is very 'Chugga Chugga' The Beat (USA)

'Bruce formed the BBs in 1952, fronting a guitar/bass/drums combo with a luxurious spread of horns that now have all the acoustic properties of a Thirties 78, a vintage crispness that's no bad thing when you're whirling around to such quaint confections today' Q Magazine
