"Naxos is a German label best known for classical music. They have branched out and are now issuing world music under their Naxos World imprint, and plan a dozen budget-priced new albums this year. I got two new releases to check out: the first, ELECTRIC HIGHLIFE, is a set of classic eighties highlife from Ghana...If you are a fan of classic highlife check this one out...The music reveals the influences of colonial brass ensembles, sea shanties, finger-picked guitar, call-and-response vocals, choppy organs and sweet melodies. Naxos promises thorough documentation with the CD when it is released later this month."

"The world might have missed out on Electric Highlife: Sessions from the Bokoor Studios (Naxos World), an eclectic compilation of some of Ghana's most influential highlife players. The styles represented by the eight bands on Electric Highlife laid the groundwork for the Afropop explosion of the mid-'80s, and helped bring the upbeat sound to hungry Western audiences."
