Number One

Om de zoveel tijd bereikt mij het verzoek eens de meest
neergeladen plaatjes van de Global Groef te etaleren. Nu,
hier zijn ze dan weer eens. Je begrijpt dat door de jaren de
volgorde wel eens verandert. Ayinla Omowura staat echter
zo ferm voor op de anderen dat deze niet snel van z’n troon
zal worden gestoten. Ook Arsenio Rodriguez’ primitivo is
zo’n winnaar al is deze dus reeds een tijdje terug van
één naar twee verdreven. Loop er nog eens langs ..

Every once in so much time people request to see the list of
Global Groove’s most downloaded records. Well here they are
once again. You will understand the list changes every once in a
while, however, Ayinla Omowura sits on the throne so firmly, it
is not likely he’ll fall off soon. Another sheer winner is Arsenio
Rodriguez’ Primitivo although he went from the number One to
Two quite some time ago now. Give them another shot ..

    So interesting. I always think of your blog as an African music blog, really it’s my go-to African music blog! But clearly it’s not only that.

    Thanks for all the work you put into GG!

    Thanks Moos. I’ve downloaded this album and really I have to say, I don’t appreciate this Apala style. It is the third ou fourth time I try to hear that kind of musician, but for me always the same feeling : I get bored. I have to say that my kind of interest in African music is very diverse (from Ocora releases to Fela or Rumba and Star Band de Dakar). So I’m not afraid about difficulties or ethnomusicology but in this case of Apala, I failed !
    Not a big deal, but I need to understand. So if someone can tell me ?

    This is a good excuse to pause & say thank you. I keep forgetting to come back after listening to an LP and say thanks for uploading it – so many good LPs, so little thanks…!

    A quick look down this list of 20 says, I’ve only heard 3 (I think), despite the dozens, maybe hundreds of LPs I’ve downloaded and enjoyed. Maybe I’m missing a trick – thanks for the list, here are at least 17 more which must be worth a spin!! Thanks Moos for keeping going, and going, an going, despite the meagre thank yous.
