l’Afrique Danse – Various Artists
african 360.042, 1971/1972

l'Afrique Danse, front

Always trying to find the next ‘african’ 360.000 series album
I go from fair to fair and from one recordstore to an other. The
moment one finds another number in the series becomes more
scarse all the time. So when it finally happens again a shiver goes
down my spine, such a thrilling experience. At the last big fair we
got lucky and found this one. Number 360.042 contains songs
in various styles. Track #3 by Tala André Marie and track #5 by
manu Dibango are the ones I less favour, together with #8.
The other five songs however please me very much. Skip
the weepies to go short and enjoy the rest of the album.
