Every time I go to the Utrecht recordfair I meet with one
of the French recorddealers. This guy always brings some
special material. Take this record, a discovery I made through
him this time. From 1976 on Pathé Marconi we found Passy
Mermans. He is performing here with Orchestre Bantous, 1,2,3,
4 & 9, Orchestre Lisolo, 7 & 8 and Orchestre Les Nzoy, 5 & 6. The
Lisolo orchestra developed from a group called Mando Négro under
the leadership of Passy Mermans. I suspect family ties with Belgium
descendants concerning his last name. ( 'Verckys' does the same.. )
Although I pay a fair price for the lp's, I'm happy to find people making
available such rare lost treasures for us to find and reanimate. Don't
just get it, but be sure to also spread it and breathe
new life into it.. damn good..

Good evening, the groove of today is going to be a Colombian
one. On Discos Curro we have us an album with songs by three
groups. Orquesta Melodia, La Sonora Curro and Super Combo
de Curramba. It is not exactly clear what band plays which song.
The cover does not give that information nor does the label of the
record. How ever they organised it, I don't really care. The music is
so hot, it makes one forget such futilities. So get it and spread it,
it is one of the hottest Colombian sounds I ever heard, enjoy..

When watching one of my favourite TV shows last night, they
had quite a nice surprise. Tim Knol, a Dutch singer appeared
with Jody Stephens, one of the original members of Big Star.
For many an unknown group from the early seventies. They
only existed a couple of years but made some very nice
records. I thought it would be something else for a change
to post some pop music from the old days. Towards the end
of the year I always tend to play loads of different styles of
music. Variation is a must for me, it helps to remain sharp.
So if you saw DWDD last night as well and wondered about
the rest of the material, check this,
hope U like,..

For those who like to listen to laid back Brazilian music
from the sixties and seventies, I made us this compilation.
Before you start commenting, let me be the first to say;
You're right, this is not only bossa nova. This comp also
contains some samba, chorinho and MPB for instance. I just
picked a nice cover from the pile of Loronix material, after
all, it was made under the spell of Zecalouro who taught us
so much about this wonderful almost gorgotten music.
Consider it another tribute to Loronix and Zeca,
Hope U like..

Congolese post # 400 is here.

It was in august 2010 that I posted one of their albums, about
time to follow up that fine lp. Our friend dj Daudi from Ambiance
Congo used the first one of these tracks in his online radioshow in april.
Smooth piece of Brazzaville sound from the old days and
GG's 399th Congolese post, # 400 is in the making.
Listen with pleasure..
