Conjunto Os tropicais – Só Merengue vol. 2
Voz de Cabo Verde 1971

Good morning groovers, Angolan records are almost impossible
to find here in the Netherlands. If you find them at all they cost
a fortune so I decided to make a trip to Portugal last year. I had
a great time digging in Lisbon and Porto and was rewarded with
some nice finds. Of course nowadays everybody knows the value
of rare vinyl due to the internet so even in Portugal, being the
former colonist of Angola, you won’t find cheap albums. Com-
bining a record search with a little holiday made it worth
the effort eventually. Today, one of the albums I found,
Conjunto Os Tropicais, from 1971, on Voz
de Cabo Verde, enjoy listening ..

Goeie morgen groevers, Angolese platen zijn bijna onmogelijk te
vinden hier in Nederland. Als je ze al vind kosten ze een klein ver-
mogen dus bedacht ik maar eens in Portugal te gaan zoeken vorig
jaar. I heb me goed vermaakt, crate digging, in Lissabon en Porto
en werd beloond met wat aardige vindingen. Vanzelfsprekend
weet men door sites als Discogs tegenwoordig overal de waarde
van een zeldzame plaat dus ook in Angola’s voormalige kolonist,
Portugal, vind je geen goedkoop vinyl meer. Gecombineerd met
een kleine vakantie bleek het uiteindelijk voor mij zeer de moeite
waard. Vandaag, een van de platen daar gevonden, Conjunto
Os Tropicais, uit 1971 en op Voz de Cabo Verde, luister ..

    Dear Moos,
    a super big thank you very much for your courage!! But please, at least spoken for me, don’t spend crazy sums of money to keep us edutained… You have done already a superb job to let us know more about Africas music over all those years you kept this blog running… Maybe time has come to consult your followers and blogger friends on the difficult to find Angolan music? Maybe one or the other has something from Angola to contribute to your blog…? What do you think about that?
    With best regards Stefan

      Dear Stefan, thank you for thinking about my wallet. Don’t worrie though,
      I would collect eventhough when I wasn’t sharing my collection with you.
      I am not getting in trouble because I need to do this desperately, the idea
      of followers or friends supporting Global Groove is sympathetic however.
      If anybody wants to, I am open to post music from Angola, Panama or Ethiopia
      for instance, all stuff hard to find. thank you in advance. By the way, I still
      have thousands of records waiting to get posted, no stress,
      cheers and thnx again ..
