mc god & the people's band
bar beach show
1978


(...)but even in good times ghana's musicians had some problems to create their music if they were not the leaders of one of the famous bands or worked for the government like e.k.nyame. the musicians often did not own their instruments and depended totally on their producers.

this record is an exception - it was produced by mc god himself the people's band isn't a band really, but a group of musicians that mc god knew and engaged for the recording sessions. the recording was realized in three days : five hours of rehearsal in the studio on the first day. six hours of recording on the second day and on the third day mc god laid the vocal overdubs with tommy and samy.
