Description

The fifth presentation of vintage recordings from the EMI Archive in Hayes, this album uncovers the dizzy beginnings of the golden age of African music — zinging with the social and political ferment of the independence movement and anti-colonialism, after the Second World War — and the daredevil origins of Congolese rumba, the entire continent's most popular music in the sixties and seventies. With notes by Gary Stewart, author of Rumba On The River; rare photographs; sound restoration at Abbey Road. Check!
