Chief Fasco Dagama & His Super Performers (Nigeria/1979)


Chief Fasco Dagama may be from Nigeria or Benin his juju music album edited on Beninese Albarika Store label remains excellent. Gangan or talking-drum lovers will be delighted.
I think comment from Reservatory resumes perfectly this album:

"This one's still on rotation. I hear bits of Alhadji Haruna Ishola and gamelan in the rhythm, but the guitars really take it somewhere else. Polytonality, microtonality or faulty tuning, I can't get enough whatever it is. And does his name reference Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama? Thanks again for this treasure."

Stanley Murphy & Les Grand Columbias du Peuple (Côte d'Ivoire/1979)


I love Stanley Murphy's music, especially with Grands Columbias du Peuple's famous backing band which also recorded with Okoi Seka Athanase. I also love the cover of this 1979's album. I have dreamed seeing this electric artist in concert.

J'aime la musique de Stanley Murphy surtout lorsqu'il est accompagné par "Les Grands Columbias du Peuple" connu pour avoir enregsitré avec Okoi Seka Athanase. J'aime aussi la pochette de cet album enregistré en 1979. J'aurais rêvé assister à un concert de cet artiste qui a un talent électrique.


Orchestre de la Paillote (Guinea/1967)


I can't resist posting this second album from "Orchestre de la Paillote" led by Kelitigui Traore and recorded in 1967. The vinyl is currently for sale on ebay by "surely burli".
I would therefore like to post some extracts of the vinyl (but incomplete) and also the cd version. Have pleasure...
