info 

The first-ever reissue of the classic 1981 debut album from this much revered Ghanaian band. Vibrantly produced by British sound explorer Brian Eno in Accra, Ghana. Highlife meets afro-funk. Spirited, horn driven & trailblazing. Now, almost four decades after a coup d’état in Ghana prematurely halted their career, Edikanfo has returned. And with its surviving members gearing up to reissue and tour their classic 1981 album, “The Pace Setters,” the band is once again excitedly pointed towards the future. The LP & CD feature exclusive liner notes from Brian Eno and an extensive interview with Edikanfo band leader Gilbert Amartey Amar.
