Super Rail Band
Buffet Hôtel de la Gare de Bamako volume 2
Rail Culture Authentique Mali 1983


It is almost nine years ago, time sure flies don’t you think ?
The GG existed only five months when I posted the Rail Band
in october 2008. It was an album on Globe Style from 1982 and
contained two of the songs we also find on today’s record. I think
this one was used to make the Globe Style album, it had the same
pictures as well, even when the original volumes one & two were
released in 1983. Anyway, two of the songs on this one are new
to us, listen and enjoy, I think they are just awesome..
P.S. the sound is extremely good,
part from one tic in track four.

Zo’n negen jaar is het alweer geleden, de GG bestond net vijf
maanden toen ik de Rail Band plaatste. Het was een album op
Globe Style uit 1982. De plaat bevatte twee nummers die ook
op dit album staan. Ik denk dat deze aan de andere ten oorsprong
heeft gelegen, ook al kwamen de originele volumes 1 & 2 pas uit in
1983. er staan tevens de zelfde fotootjes op. In ieder geval vinden
we vandaag twee nummers die we nog niet hadden, luister zelf,
ze zijn niet te versmaden naar mijn bescheiden mening..
P.S. het geluid is buitengewoon goed, los
van één plek in het vierde nummer.

    Thank you once again, Moos. Rail Band are one of my all-time favourites. I played it loud today in celebration of the life and work of Paapa Yankson.
