AllMusic Review by

A veteran takes a fresh look at a classic highlife sound. Frempong goes way back as both a vocalist and composer, and even further (to Okoh's great guitar band) as a drummer. This fine new London-recorded album has the flavor of the classic dance-band highlife in its vocals, and the horns and guitars are updated with contemporary keyboards, bass and percussion that expands the basic style without fighting it: always a neat trick.
