ZAZOU/BIKAYE/CY1 - NOIRE ET BLANC


Here's the incredible 1983 album from Hector Zazou, Bony Bikaye and Cy1, I've got it on vinyl and on cd. When this came out a lot of people were comparing it to Eno and Byrne's My Life In The Bushes Of Ghosts, others were calling it Fela meets Kraftwerk. It's one of my all time favorite albums this one abd I saw them live in Amsterdam, in 1984....

BOB BOOKER & EARLE DOUD - THE FIRST FAMILY



Here's a very, very funny album spoofing the Kennedy family. Get it while you can, a lot of links are being taken down within 24 hours now, will look for another uploader. The reason I've been using mediafire is because I can continue uploading something if my internet connection goes down (which is quiet often at the moment) but this SUCKS....

CHAINO & HIS AFRICAN PERCUSSION SAFARI - JUNGLE ECHOES




Here's a great, great album from Chairo & His African Percussion Safari....

From Wikipedia:

Leon "Chaino" Johnson (1927 – July 8, 1999), the self-styled "percussion genius of Africa," was an American bongo player. After touring for several years on the Chitlin' Circuit, he released several albums and became popular with listeners of exotica music in the late 1950s and early 1960s. In the promotion of his albums, a fictional biography was developed, depicting Chaino as an orphan from a lost tribe in central Africa who had been rescued by a missionary after his tribe had been massacred. Chaino was actually born in Philadelphia and raised in Chicago.
