Discotheque 70 – Various Artists Editions Syliphone Conakry SLP 23

Discotheque 70, front

If I am not mistaking, my French is not that good, Syliphone Records
made this compilation to please thousands of happy Guinéean radio
listeners. The tracks on side-a of this lp, 1 till 5, have all been tophits
at the various national radiostations in 1970. Tracks 6 and 7 are extra’s
making a compliment to the young instrumentalists that play authentic
melodies and rhythms in modern interpretations. I am sorry track 6 has
some hiss in the background, you must realise it is over 40 yrs. old.
Nevertheless, happy listening to yall, get it before it’s gone..

  1. Hey Moos! Thanks for another amazing post. Although, its been a while since we&#39;ve seen the &quot;Okukuseku International Band of Ghana&quot; here at the GG. I hope that we can see them again very soon 🙂 <br /><br />Best wishes,<br /><br />Caleb

  2. Yes sir a good selecion of Manding music, much more serene than expected, seeing that haughty woman with hairstyle characteristic for the Foulah of Guinea.<br />Thanks a lot Moos!

  3. The Diabaté brothers´ 17 minute guitar-cum-kora tune has been glued onto my record player ever since a friend gave me this precious gem years ago. Enjoy this LP, friends! OdT

  4. Oooh I missed this one.<br />Guinea is always great music.<br />unfortunately, the file was deleted. greetings.

  5. File is gone. Hmm. If it was better than 224 kbps, I&#39;d love to have a re-up.<br />Thank you anyway…

  6. Wonderful yet bizarre contrast as you turn from side A to side B; the calm kora / guitar, the rootsy Exhumation, after all that (excellent) Guinean jazz! Most of the pieces well worth hearing again &amp; again, I think this one will be playing on my iPyod for quite a while! Thank you, Moos
