    Hi Moos This one is funny.I bought this record in 1987 after I returned from a visit to Bengamisa Congo where my uncle used to live.I knew the Congolese rumba from the 50’s but I only had 2 cassettes recorded from 45″s from family and friends who lived that side.I am so sure that it was 1987 because I started university that year and this record was a hit on the first parties we used I have been looking for this record for years as lost it returning from Zim in 1999, searches on internet the last years mention all that this record was printed in 1990.Not that this is important because the music is great but it makes me wonder if I am so mistaken ,do I suffer from loss of memory. I am convinced I am right.Can anybody assure me I am not yet senile LOL. Anyway thumbs up for global groove the side that makes my life complete,besides my wife and kids of course.Thanks again for bringing me back to memory lane. Je sortirai. KO ce vendredi

      haha.., you are not senile yet Rik, the copy I used comes from a cd which was launched in 1990.
      You must have had the original elpee which clearly was released a couple of years earlier..
      To be honest I used the backsleeve from the web, appearently the lp backsleeve,
      very confusing all together..

        Thanks Moos, for reassuring me that I am still in good mental health ;-). This night I’ll celebrate in style. ‘Woza Friday’ like we say in southern Africa.Cheers

        very confusing indeed…there must a mistake on one sleeve or another because they have spelled the album title with a ‘g’ and an ‘n’ not two ‘n’s’ as you have in your header!!
        (senility – a great excuse for all kinds of misdemeanours!!!)
