Sammy Cropper & His Wire Connections (Ghana, 1978)

Toujours sur le même label Américain Makossa Records, la suite logique du précédent courrier sur le redoutable orchestre Vis-A-Vis Dance Band, avec un album signé par son grand guitariste Sammy Cropper. Sur cet album figure aussi le fameux batteur, Shaolin Kung Fu. Ce disque est comme neuf et vous pouvez l'acheter sur Diaspora Records. Assez parlé, voici le texte qui figure sur la pochette arrière du disque, et qui dit tout:

Don't be deceived by this album with this Guy Sammy Cropper, as the founder and leader of the Wire Connections group. He is still with the versatile Vis-A-Vis Dance Band. This is just a trying of his experience.
Sammy Cropper started playing the guitar in his elementary school days. By secondary and technical levels he was very good at it, and would entertain his contemporaries during free time.
He joined the Cubano Fiesta when he left school and remained with it for one year leaving to join the Supreme Starlight Band for the next five years, and from which he formed the versatile Vis-A-Vis.

Hi there Oro,

Was wondering if you have anything from Seaboy (other than the blue one that has been posted elsewhere) or Nyame Bekyere?

The Wire Connections is a good album. It has popped up on a couple other blogs a while back.

thanks.
