On this 5th of may, a national day of celebration in the Netherlands,
I want to give you this special lp. I found it at the last recordfair in
Utrecht. The dealer made me pay quite a price and at first I didn't
want to but after some discussion it did change owners. Produced
in Côte d'Ivoire it is an album one does not get the chance to find
easily. With Asi Kapela - vocals, Lukau Jean Jules - guitar solo,
Ringo Moya Lotula - drums, Mamana Antoine - bass guitar and
Keletingui Papus - bass & vocals. Lokassa - accomp. guitar.
The lp is a bit crackly and has a few pops but it's not that
disturbing, the b-side has an uncentered middle hole
that makes it sound a bit false towards the end.
Still, I'd say give it a go, rare and wonderful
Lokassa ya M'bongo material,
I'm a huge fan.
