Guinée An XII – Various Artists
Editions Syliphone Conakry 1971

Uit 1971 stamt deze elpee op Editions Syliphone de Conakry.
Drie van de zangers hier gepresenteerd zijn afkomstig uit Guinée.
De vierde is Myriam Makeba die in Guiné woonde met haar toen-
malige echtgenoot Stokely Carmichael. Ze treedt hier wel op met
Quintette Guineen. Desondanks vallen haar twee songs wat uit de
toon. Kortom, zes goede en twee iets minder goede nummers.

From 1971 comes this album on Editions Syliphone Conakry.
Three out of the four singers presented are indeed from Guinée.
The fourth is Myriam Makeba who used to live in Guinée in those
days with her husband Stokely Carmichael. She does appear with
Quitette Guineen. In spite of this her two songs do not match with
the rest of the record. In short, six good and two less good songs.
