The founding father of the most popular style of dance music in Africa, which spread like a bushfire across the continent and beyond during the 1950s and 60s, E.T. Mensah ‘The King of Highlife’ is a true legend of African music. These classic tracks, 69 in total, many of which have not been available for more than 50 years, have been digitally transferred at the National Sound Archive with the cooperation of the Mensah family and estate.

Produced by RetroAfric and released on the 6th of March -Ghana Independence Day- this 4 CD boxset includes a 64-page biography by Highlife expert John Collins, making it the ultimate music lovers compendium of one of the most revered of all African composers and band leaders.
