Orchestre Vévé
Les Grands Succes des Editions Vévé vol. 3
Sonafric 1978

Until today I thought I had posted them all, the nine volumes
I have from the magnificent series ‘Les Grands Succes des
Editions Vévé’. After making a promise to my new Congolese
friend Willy yesterday, I went searching for unposted treasure
and what do I find ? I never posted volume 3. Wonderful stuff
by Orchestre Vévé. It is in mint condition. We are lucky today,
this one is for you Willy, get it and spread it !
P.S. track #4 has some crackle, but is not
the album, it is in the recording they used .

Tot op de dag van vandaag dacht ik dat ik alle negen delen, die
ik heb van de prachtige serie ‘Les Grands Succes des Editions Vévé’,
al gepost had. Nadat ik gisteren aan m’n nieuwe Congolese vriend
Willy beloofde op zoek te gaan naar ongeposte schatten vond ik dit.
Het blijkt dat ik Vol. 3 nooit gepost had, Geweldige plaat met
Orchestre Vévé. Hij verkeert ook nog in mint conditie. We
hebben mazzel vandaag. Deze is voor
jou Willy, down, deel en luister !
P.S. Nummer 4 heeft wat kraakjes, maar ziet er clean uit,
het zit niet in deze plaat, maar in de gebruikte opname.


Vol. 1 1977
Vol. 2 1977
Vol. 4 1978
Vol. 5 1978
Vol. 6 1978
Vol. 7 1978
Vol. 8 1978
Vol. 9 1978

    Oh joy. This is like when as a kid I found my Mom’s lost wedding ring stuck in the car tread tire!

    Fitting tribute to Orchestre Vévé band leader and great saxophonist, Verckys Kiamuangana Mateta, who passed away on 13th October 2022.
