Funky Highlife

I'm pretty tired from last night's Grow Up party. Thanks to everyone who made it out…Definitely good times as always!

Here is an excerpt taken from C.K. Mann & Carousel 7's classic Afrobeat medley that was included on the group's 1975 Funky Highlife LP. This portion of the medley appears at the beginning of the record's A-side and is titled "Asafo Beesuon / Obaa Yaa Aye Me Bone". The track has appeared on a few notable compilations including BBE's fifth volume of their Strange Games & Funky Things series and the Ocho Records issue of The Shrine Presents Afrobeat. Overall a classic excerpt from one of the most sought after Afrobeat records. Enjoy!
