l'Afrique Danse 360.122, front, cd size

Oh dear, my friends in Congolese music, this album is so hót !
Is it just my indestructible mood of the day or do you agree ?
Damn, I can’t get enough of those stirring guitars and sweet

You are being warned.

    Hello! I just stumbled upon your fantastic blog and thought to ask you if you might have this:

    1981 King Sunny Ade & His African Beats
    The Message (LP; Sunny Alade SALPS 25)
    [A] Baba Orun A Mbe O / Igbala Ni Mofe / Oro Dugbe Dugbe / Ko S’Agbe Mo Loko / Mo Beru Oruko T’Aiye Nje
    [B] Ma J’Aiye Oni / Alhaji Bode Osinusi / Alhaji Rasaq Ogbara

    I’ve been looking for it since it was mentioned on an old blog ages ago. According to that blog it’s his best album… Would be so grateful if you could post it.

    Haven’t listened yet, but are Stukas Caiman and Stukas Mata Kita offshoots of Lita Bembo’s Stukas or are they the exact same band under different monikers? Can anyone clarify? Thanks!
