VariousZaire 74 – The African Artists ... CD
Wrasse, 1974. New Copy 2CD ... $17.99 19.99
Amazing music from an amazing moment – the legendary Zaire 74 concerts that took place before the Rumble In The Jungle fight between Muhammad Ali and George Frazier! The moment was one of great pride and power – and although the concert performances have become the stuff of legend over the years, this is the first time they've ever been properly issued – presented as a huge collection of tracks with very detailed notes! Other music from this festival has been issued – famous concerts by James Brown and Fania All Stars – but these tracks are all by African artists, and really show the tremendous cultural activity taking place on the continent at the time – in a mix of modes that are fierce and funky throughout. It's crazy that we've had to wait so long to hear this music – but the quality of the tracks is more than worth it – in a triple-length package that features smoking performances by Miriam Makeba, Franco & TP OK Jazz, Abeti, Orchestre Stukas, Abumba Masikini, Tabu Ley Rochereau & Afrisa, and Pembe Dance Troup. 34 tracks in all – and a really wonderful package! CD
Also available Zaire 74 – The African Artists (3LP set) ... LP 31.99

✨✧ VariousAngola 80s – 1978 to 1990 ... CD
Buda (France), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The fourth and most varied entry in Buda's great Angola series! During a period where only artists backed by the ruling MLPA party got regular opportunities to perform and record, it's amazing that so much strong material managed to get chronicled – many artists were forced to record in Lisbon. The Brazilian influence is quite strong on many tracks, whether it's a string-laden ballad by Waldemar Bastos with guest vocals by Martinho da Vila or the gorgeous solo guitar piece by Filipe Mukenga, whose lovely falsetto bears an uncanny resemblance to Jorge Ben. There are examples of traditional sembe and lamento forms and the encroachment of Congolese rumba is also evident on a number of rhythmically springy tracks. Tracks include "Ngola Iami" by Voto Goncalves, "Tia" by Dom Caetano, "Povo" by Paulo Flores, "Nguitabule" by Os Merengues, and "Man Pole" by Mito Gaspar. CD
