Les Grands Succes des Editions Vévé vol. 4
– Various Artists, Sonafric 1978

Les Grands Succes, front

Completing series is a goal we all have when collecting music.
Take this series of Les Grands Succes des Editions Vévé, we
had volumes 1,2,5,6,7,8 and 9. You can imagine how it feels
to finally find volume 4. Volume 3 is still on my wishlist but
I’m sure one fine day I’ll walk into that missing volume as well.
There is a whole lot of albums yet to be discovered, the search
never ends in that perspective. Verckys is an artist of which we
can never find enough music but it gets harder to find all the
time. The record we’ve got today contains three tracks by
Orchestre Lipua-Lipua and one by Orchestre Kiam,
from 1978 and a real treasure, listen..


01 – Orchestre Lipua-Lipua – Distingue
02 – Orchestre Lipua-Lipua – Nasepelisa nzoto
03 – Orchestre Lipua-Lipua – Zela mobali nayo mpo otuna
04 – Orchestre Kiam – Mbale

  1. Hi Moos
    In 2011 you said of Kiam on Les Grands Succes “a hell of an
    album. Do you buggers realize just how damn lucky you are to get to hear this”. With this offering I do realise how lucky I am, therefore am I not a ‘bugger’?
    (just skylarking!!)

  2. I’m a Congolese music newbie, but I’ve been listening to and enjoying to two Verkeys albums from this site (thanks, Moos!!). Regarding this album, what is Verkeys’ contribution — does he play on these song, is he the producer, etc? Just curious. Thanks!

  3. Wow. Where did you find this? I, too, have been seeking this Volume 4 for a very long time. Please let me know if you find another copy!
    Thanks for the chance to “get it and share it”!
