Choc Stars – Retrouvailles à Paris vol. 3
Amour Infini Bakutu
Rythmes et Musique 1985

To be frank, I must admit, although I do like some of their
records a lot, I am certainly not their biggest fan. Choc Stars
made some 50 albums. I think the one we find today is one
of their very best. With that outstanding bass, if I’m not mis-
taking by Djo Mali. Real nice 1985 release, their finest days.
It is volume 3 from four ‘Retrouvailles à Paris’ albums, mostly
composed by Bozi Boziana. Enjoy the Choc Stars ..

Om eerlijk te zijn, en hoewel ik sommige van hun platen heel
goed vind, ben ik niet hun grootste fan. Choc Stars maakte zo’n
50 albums. Ik denk dat degene die we vandaag hebben zeker
één van hun allerbeste is. Met die heerlijke basloopjes, als ik me
niet vergis door Djo Mali gespeeld. Echt fijne release uit 1985,
hun beste periode. Dit is volume 3 van vier ‘Retrouvailles à Paris’,
voornamelijk gecomponeerd door Bozi Boziana, enjoy ..

    Thanks. I also really love the ‘Retrouvailles à Paris’ series. The series didn’t have any real ‘hit’ songs, but it really does show the band in top form. The recording quality is also excellent so you can pick out every note and instrument. Volume 2 is the standout for me, though they are all very consistent. Usual star guitarist Roxy Tshimpaka is unusually absent on the whole series but I think hard to miss, his substitute Sedjo Kha is less flashy but still exceptional. It is at the end of the Bozi Boziana era and he’s still the dominant singer – you get his inimitable energy and vocal skill driving through it all.

    Great album. Anything by Choc stars, but Arlette Lokakou is a real favorite.
