Orchestra BaobabMouhamadou Bamba ... LP
Syllart (France), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99 36.99
A classic album from the best years of Orchestra Baobab – a time when the group were maybe the greatest thing coming out of Dakar, and really helping to move a whole generation of West African sounds forward into new directions! The instrumentation is still relatively old school – no drum programs or beats, just this fantastic blend of quick guitar lines, tenor sax, and plenty of percussion – all topped by back/forth vocals from members of the group, but with an energy that's maybe thinking more globally than locally, with a really wonderful spirit throughout. Titles include "Yen Saay", "Gnawoe", "Doomou Baaye", "Boulmamine", "Mouhamadou Bamba", and "Ndiawolou". LP, Vinyl record album

Orchestra BaobabSi Bou Odja (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Syllart (France), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99 36.99
An amazing classic from Orchestra Baobab – one of those records that reminds us why the group were always so different than anyone else! Some of the rhythms are familiar, but the execution is very unique – chopped up at times, so that the grooves are a perfect mix for the angular tenor and alto lines form Issa Cissokho, whose saxophone presence here may well be worth the price of admission alone! But all other aspects are great, too – from the sharp-but-snakey guitar solos of Barthelemy Attiso, to the sonorous vocals of the group – sometimes inflected in more of an east African style, but which maybe also belie the group's roots in the crossroads city of Dakar. Titles include "Autorail", "Sibou Odia", "Sotante Xalat", "Bon Bon I", and "Ndiambaane". LP, Vinyl record album
(50th Anniversary limited edition pressing!)
