(MP3 Podcast on Kraked, 2009-02-08

A mix coming from web-digging sessions, thanks to the passion and culture of a few people, one may discover today unkwown pearls which any other way would be reserved for rich collectors (I won't dare to imagine the price of the 'African Fiesta' 45). 70s African music beating prices records on E-bay these days, we only have labels like Soundway, Kona, Analog Africa, Honest Jon's, Strut, etc. and their amazing compilations...

In order to dig deeper, go back up to the source and find information, we'd advise to begin with those must-not-miss four Blogs (of course sound is sometimes not that prefect but frankly there are bombs in there). Maximum respect.
