A. Honny & The Bees Band - Psychedelic Woman / AA. Gyedu-Blay Ambolley & The Steneboofs - Simigwado
Africa 45, number 8.
Ghanaian group Honny & The Bee’s Band recorded ‘Psychedelic Woman’ for a release on Essiebons in 1973. Little is known about the group. ‘Psychedelic Woman’ is, as you would expect from the name, a psychedelic mid tempo groover. Punctuated with a hypnotic guitar line, percussion and a catchy sung chorus.
'Simigwado' –– breaks and grooves, underpin this upbeat call-and-response JB-esque afro-funk gem, from Ghanaian legend Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and his group The Steneboofs. Originally released on a Capeside 45 in 1973. Ambolley released the highly sought afer ‘Simigwa’ LP on Essiebons in the same year.
