Peacocks Guiter Band -
Abiriwa, EMI



















It's time for Nigerian highlife. I walked into our little
village about a week ago and found the annual record-
market in the centre of town. Somehow they always
neglect to announce this in a proper way so it has
become an annual surprise. Anyway, it is a very
welcome surprise and especially this year. I got
lucky again walking against some rare records.
This is one of my finds. Peacock's Guiter Band
led by Raphael Amarabem comes in at the GG
with this EMI release, don't know from what
year, if you do please tell us.
now listen..

Thanks for another excellent post. By the way, this music is not from Ghana. The record comes from Nigeria, Igbo to be exact. The Peacocks hail from Owerri in Igboland much like the Oriental Brothers who were their direct competition in the 70s, before the Orientals eventually eclipsed them.

You had me laughing with your claim that Peacocks International band was of Ghana. No sir, they were/are Nigerians, mostly from Owerri in Imo state. The album was made in 1974, not 1972. It was a great hit then and now too. It is a classic.
Cheers and thanks for posting and sharing it.
