Image: 1590338 BBE are back with the third installment of the “Masters We Love” series. This time taking their crate-digging journey to producer Reindorf Oppong and reissuing Nana Love’s ‘Disco Documentary - Full of Funk . Featuring unreleased tracks and a new master from the original master tapes this is a must own for any afro disco aficionado.

The third instalment of our “Masters We Love” series, our crate-digging journey led us to the original producer Reindorf Oppong, of what could possibly be one of the most ‘mysterious’ Afro-Disco records produced in the late 70s, Nana Love’s “Disco Documentary – Full Of Funk”.
The original master tapes were un-covered [and luckily in great shape] and in the process of restoring the tapes, un-released material was discovered, enriching this very special package.
Nana Love’s work, is a testament to the music’s most redeeming qualities: great musicianship, funky basslines and killer breaks. As a singer / songwriter in the leading role throughout, she [with production by Reindorf Oppong] lends a wonderfully balanced approach to the arrangements. The result is a set of tracks that are positioned carefully at the forward thinking crossroads of Disco, Boogie and
Soul & Funk…
Her band included 6 of the original Boney M members as well as the legendary Harry Mosco and was recorded in London in 1978, in the same studio as Boney M recorded alongside David Bowie.
This album makes us think, would there ever have been a Studio 54 in Ghana in late 70s? If so these would have been the recordings that would have packed the dance floor with their deep root in Disco, Soul & Funk!
