ADAYE - Turn It Up (1983)

Heads, SV0022
Producer: Emil Zoghby
Engineer: Phil Audoire

Recorded by Ray Phiri and members of Stimela at a time when they dodged record industry conventions by recording under a host of different names for various labels (eg. Kumasi, Street Kids). Produced by the late Emil Zoghby, others involved in the project included legendary producer Peter Moticoe and singer Al Etto. Over 10 tracks were recorded during the Adaye sessions, but this was the only one to be released.
