the Best of Vis-a-Vis – in Congo Style
Ride Away / Ambassador 1976

On this sunday morning we’ve got something different.
Ghanaian band Vis-aVis play six songs in Congo style.
The first track has some nasty pops and is therefore
quite bad sounding in the beginning. I have thought
about skipping it. From one third it starts sounding
better though so I left it for you to decide if you still
want to keep it. Isaac Yeboah, Sammy Cropper and
their group really nail this, they were still very young
here but clearly know what they’re doing, they prove
themselves extremely versatile .. enjoy your sunday ..

goede morgen, op deze zondag ochtend hebben we
een bijzondere plaat voor je. De Ghanese band Vis-aVis
speelt zes nummers in Congo stijl. Het eerste nummer
heeft enkele lelijke plops en klinkt daardoor nogal slecht
in het begin. Ik had het bijna weggelaten maar na één
derde wordt het weer zeer acceptabel en heb ik besloten
het aan jou over te laten of je het bewaart. Isaac Yeboah,
Sammy Cropper en hun groep doen dit ondanks hun lage
leeftijd erg goed. Ze weten duidelijk wat ze
doen en blijken zeer veelzijdig.

    Wow. Simply amazing.
    Sammy Cropper on the guitar and Slim on the bass.
    Most of these guys made up K Frimpong’s Cubano fiestas so you know this is good stuff.
    Thank you for this.

    Hi Moos,

    I commented a few days ago that I was unable to download from you after your recent technical problem. As it happens, I had a glitch, too, and had to repair my antivirus & firewall program, Vipre. The current situation is that I can download from Global Groove, but to do so I now have to shut down Vipre altogether. This is not a very satisfactory solution, but I don’t expect that it requires any action on your part. It may be the result of a recent Vipre update. I just wanted you to know in the event that another user encounters a similar problem.

    Thanks for all you do. Stay safe and healthy!
