Senegambian Sensation – The Original Madal Ly & More Ndagga Music

CD (Item 493661) Retro Afric (UK), 1960s/1970s — Condition: Used
$28.99 ...

CD

Classic material from one of Gambia's greatest bands! This staunchly modern group shook things up at home in the late 60s, playing through Marshall amps and dressing in thrift store duds for a sartorial splendor at home with Swinging London. The band covered "Hey Jude" and wrote some dazzling original rock-soul tunes – including the great "Love's A Real Thing", recently heard as the title track of Luaka Bop's African psychedelic collection – but more importantly they embraced and updated the traditional styles that most contemporary bands ignored. Singing in Wolof and broken English they forged a beguiling mix of highlife, Congolese rumba, and Afro-Cuban forms, blending in native Mandinka, Fula, and Jola traditions, all delivered with a crisp, rhythmic propulsion. Tracks include "Mandal Ly", "Viva Super Eagles", "Aduna Poti Ndala", "Aliou Gori-Mami", and "Bada Tourey".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Day Of Judgement
Now Again, 1976. Used
Some of the heaviest work to come from the African scene of the 70s – the initial offering of the Ngozi Family – a group who clearly take strong inspiration from the Cream years of the UK scene, but who also come across with a grittier, punkier vibe overall – thanks to lean, ... CD

One More Reason
Soothsayers/Red Earth (UK), 2009. Used

Caron Wheeler

UK Blak
EMI, 1990. Used
Caron Wheeler's first album after parting company with Jazzy B & Soul II Soul – still done in a very Soul II Soul-like style, though, with plenty of chunky beats that work well with Caron's deeply soulful vocals. There's a different producer on nearly every track – including Carl ... CD
