Hit Parade Africain vol. 3
Various Artists Pathé Marconi 1973

Hit Parade Africain, front

One of the things I’m always struggling with is how
to tell you about the quality of an album. We tend
to use the same superlatives all the time, great,
fine, swell, superb, awesome, words that loose
their true meaning when used too much. Now I
need to tell you how fantastic this lp really is and
don’t have the words. To me, finding an lp like this
one, on Pathé Marconi, from 1973, concerning a
Congolese collector, almost sure it is dynamite.
Now better believe me and don’t hesitate,
cause it is..

    Thanks for this. I've just had some time (after entertaining relatives) to start listening. The contents speak for themselves–you've already put a couple of Orch Sinza albums up, before, and they were excellent, as are Les Noirs. But it's also a great pleasure to hear all this in such fine sound. So much of what's out there, especially on Youtube, has been played down so far into
