Oliver de Coque and his Expo '76 Ogene Sound Super
of Africa - My Woman, Olumo 1986

Good afternoon groovers worldwide, summer is now really coming to an
end in the Netherlands. It was long and sunny but autumn is breaking
through. To keep that warm feeling, we learned a couple of tricks like
playing tropical musictypes. Today's choice is an album by Nigerian hero,
Oliver de Coque. One of the last ones to make old fashioned Nigerian Highlife.
On his covers he used to appear dressed quite extravagant but on this one
he and his wife keep it simply white. If you want it, do not hesitate.
Rapidshare is going to change some rules in october. Files that are not
downloaded for 90 days will disappear in the future. Better take a good
look around here at the GG. I am not sure yet how I'm gonna solve this
new little problem so please tell your friends to come visit us and keep
our files alive by sucking them in. Enjoy.

David Diambouana - Féfé, Eddy'Son Consortium Mondial

Remember Mama Cathy ? This the second LP by David 'Féfé' Diambouana
on Eddy'Son and on this page. What do you think ? Is that nice high
voice we hear, Théo Blaise Kounkou ? I am only sure for 90%.
The backsleeve tells us nothing about vocals. The albums made on the
Eddy'Son label always sound so natural, like it's just a bunch of
friends playing with their instruments on a sunday afternoon.
Great relaxed atmosphere, get it while you can.

African Brothers Band International, led by Nana Kwame
Ampadu I - Abortion, Jayjay Records

Although this cover looks very vague and worn out, we got us a real
nice gem here. The more I regret to tell you, track number 2 opens with
a disturbing hiss. I washed it several times and it looks clean but still.
Class A Highlife nevertheless, you wouldn't want to miss.

Juju Roots - Various Artists, Rounder Records 1985

Rounder Records is a label that stands high on my list of favourites.
They use to release lots of historic music, I became a follower after
finding a load of old Calypso on it. This album contains tracks from the
late 30's (they sound like that too) untill mid 60's. The roots of juju
do not sound like the juju we know today but you can hear some basic links.

Os Bambas - O Melhor em Samba vol. 8, OKeh 1972

A little samba on fridaynight can't hurt. Here's another OKeh release

Zuzuca. He took care of the vocals on track 3, 8 and 10 himself,
Baianinho on track 1. Contains some great dance tracks.

Femi Akinyemi's Juju Lucky Stars - Egungun Riots 1976,
Tangent / Celluloid

If we speak of Juju, we think of King Sunny Adé or Chief Ebenezer Obey.
Admiral Dele Abiodun is quite famous too but have you heard of Femi
Akinyemi's Juju Lucky Stars ? I never had untill I found this here album.
I can't find any information on the web about Femi. He's from the urban
Yoruba scene in Lagos and it rocks like crazy. The year of release is also
an unknown factor, late 70's probably, can you tell us ? Listen to this
sweet melt of Afro-Beat, Highlife and Juju.

Le Grand Maitre Franco Interpelle la Societé
dans "Attention na SIDA", A.S.M. 1987

It was when I read the article at Worldservice I realised.
By the way, Welcome back Wrldsrvc.
October 12 it's been 20 years that the great François Luambo Makiadi
died of AIDS. A huge loss for all lovers of African music.

In 1980, Franco was named a Grand Master of Zairean music by the government,
an honor that linked him with the ruling elite that was responsible for
much of the economic problems beggaring the country. The subject of his
songs shifted dramatically in this period to patriotic songs and praise
songs to wealthy fans. He also began a drastic weight gain, eventually
reaching about 300 pounds (136 kg). However, he retained the ability to
move and excite people with his music. In 1985, Franco released his
biggest hit ever, Mario, an account of a gigolo who lives off of his
older lover. In 1987 rumors began to circulate that Franco was very ill.
The only solo composition he released that year was "Attention Na SIDA"
("Beware of AIDS"), a warning to avoid catching the disease, leading to
unconfirmed speculation that he had contracted HIV. He began to withdraw
his energies from OK Jazz, causing the band to begin to disintegrate under
internal tensions, and reconverted from Islam to Roman Catholicism. On
12 October 1989 Franco died while in a Belgian clinic. His body was flown
back to Zaire where his coffin was transported on a flag-drapped hearse
with police escort through streets packed with thousands of grieving fans.
The government declared four days of national mourning during which state
radio played nothing but Franco's songs. On 17 October he was buried.

make Samplers with a track of every LP. The last one was posted in
july of this year. About time I did the next one so here it is.
From this volume and forth I shall skip some LP's with tracks that
cover a whole LP-side, they spoil the pace, but every track on the
sampler still represents an album on the page. This one covers
posts in april of this year. Find Global Samplers

Le Grand Maitre Franco, Nana, Baniel et le T.P. O.K. Jazz -
Cherche une Maison a Louer Pour Moi Cheri, Choc 1988

There are much more male than female singers in Congo. On this LP by
le Grand Maitre however we hear two lady's with sweet voices. I don't know
anything about them, first time they show up for me. Volume 2 from the same
session as the previous album, hope you like dem.

P.S. I made a little mistake in the file, I wrote cherie instead of cheri,
(feminin/masculin) can you change it yourself to remain correct ? Well done.

Martinho da Vila e seus Amigos do Partido Alto -
Nem Todo Crioulo é Doido,
Disc News 1968 ?

Listening to Samba is something one has to learn. I always compare
it with eating olives or drinking Belgian beer. The first time you
think; Ooof this is quite different, second time it is already getting
a little better and third time you really start to like it.
One way or another, for me there's no way back, hooked for life.

This LP is a quite rare one, I never saw it untill I found it
this week. It contains tracks that represent several samba schools
in Rio de Janeiro. We have Martinho and Antônio Grande from Vila Isabel,
Anália from Império Serrano, Mário from Tijuca, Zuzuca from Salgueiro,
Darcy Monteiro from Mangueira and Cabana from Portela. Hope you like it.
This is Samba as pure as it gets.

great Orchestre Afrisa International for 6 years. This LP was made
under supervision of Abel Lima who rediscovered Maïka.

Super Sambas vol. 1 - Various Artists, OKeh 1973

This Samba collector on OKeh Records is a project with the artistic
leadership of Zuzuca on 8 out of 12 tracks. He sings on two tracks,
#2 and #10. The sound of 1973, Rio de Janeiro, can you imagine how
different from now it must have been. This LP has been quite
commercial in those days but today it has another value, a nostalgic
one. I am very exited with this find, enjoy Super Samba vol. 1 !

Zuzuca - O Bom Sambista, OKeh 1972

Gente, hoje sou feliz pa'caramba. O sorte que eu tenho, não é molhe não.
Olhe o que achei, um pedaço de ouro que te vai fazer doido. Abaixe rapido.

Look what I found today. On my never ending search for records I went to
a town I don't visit frequently and got real lucky. The score is so nice I
hardly know where to start. I found some samba albums on the OKeh label,
a branch of CBS, of which the first post. Three albums on the
Romanian 'Electrecord' label, some Discos Fuentes from Colombia, some great
LP's on Syliphone, Eddy'Son, just super and you can share that luck with me.
Tell me what to post next, and most wanted goes first.
There's also some Choc Stars, Fuji with a female singer called Salawa Abeni,
Docteur Nico, Jonah Moyo and Pamelo Mounk'a. Coupé Cloué or Lisandro Meza.

Now about this album, when I saw Zuzuca between those LP's I had a shiver
going down my spine. An album like this doesn't show up every day and I realised
immediately, we've got something special here. OKeh stands for topnotch samba
and I didn't need more then one listen to know I struck gold. This is one of
the best samba LP's I have ever heard. No less then 14 tracks, one
even better than the other. The pile of OKeh's counts one other Zuzuca
and 4 samba collectors, plain fantastic !

If you like Romanian 'Lautari', this one is for you.
This album was released in 1984, the recordings must be
much older though, she passed away in 1963, not even 50 years old.

The photo on 'Grands Succes' is from much later then 1977 if I'm not

Verckys on saxophone is from 1966. For an album, that old, it spins
