Space Echo – The Mystery Behind The Cosmic Sound Of Cabo Verde Finally Revealed

CD (Item 816109) Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Extraterrestrial synths and tight, dancefloor-ready grooves from Cabo Verde – compiled here on one the most mindblowing Analog Africa collections in years! The well-detailed, beautiful-illustrated notes (an always welcome feature in Analog Africa set) tells the story of a cargo ship full of Korg, Rhodes, Moog, Farfisa and Hammond synths and keyboards – bound for an 1968 expo in Rio – turning up on a Cabo Verde island instead, and the rest is history! There's a clarity and consistency in both sound quality and in the performances, track-by-track, that's pretty incredible. A big part of the consistency is Cabo Verde musical legend Paulino Vieira and his group Voz De Cabo Verde serving as the band on around half the material here, but the whole thing is great – just a killer mix of regional sounds with wild spacey instrumental accents! Titles include "Pinta Manta" by Antonio Sanches, "Dia Ja Manche" by Dioniso Maio, "Morti Sta Bidjacu" by Jose Casimiro, "Pontin Pontin" by Bana, "Mundo D'Margura" by Tchiss Lopes, "Po D'Terra" by Joao Cirilo, "Sintado Na Pracinha" by Americo Brito, "Djal Bal Si Camin" by Antonio Dos Santos, "Stebo Cu Anabela" by Abel Lima and more.  © 1996-2021, 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.
