“When (K. Frimpong) released Kyenkyen Bi Adi M’Awu in 1976, it was about as polished and watertight a vessel as has ever set sail on the placid waters of mainstream highlife music.” — Ghana Review International

Hot on the heels of the reissue of K. Frimpong & his Cubano Fiesta’s coveted 1977 album, Continental Records is proud to announce the release of the group’s seminal self-titled LP originally released in Ghana in 1976 but never reissued in its original form until now. The leadoff track is the electrifying Kyenkyen Bi Adi M’Awu, the song that made K. Frimpong a star in Ghana. Frimpong’s backing band, as on the 1977 LP, is the Ghanaian group Vis a Vis, who also cut great records under their own name. Using high quality stereo source tapes the remastered LP has never sounded more direct, vibrant and timeless.
