Duo Ouro Negro com Sivuca- Africanissimo (Columbia/EMI, Angola)

An upgrade for an all-time favorite! Duo Ouro Negro were an amazing popular harmony group formed out of 1950's Angola. Sivuca is the heavyweight Brazillian accordionist feautured prominently on side-A. Side B appears to have been cut at different sessions with other backing combos. You may have seen this record here or here before, but never at 320 kbps*. Big thanks to Dom for the rip and the scans. An essential.

4. Muxima
5. Eh! Sambá
6. Maria Candimba
7. Dekhnni
8. Carnaval de Luanda
9. Katéria
10. Minha Mulata
11. Upa Neguinho
12. Singing My Song

*Side B is different here than on other versions I've had. While confusing, its hard to argue with the tracklist as shown on that great scan of the back cover.

Jorge Ben- Africa Brasil

I love this album. With all the attention paid to Jorge Ben on various (Excellent) Tropicalia compilations , I just don't understand why this album hasn't gotten the reissue love that it deserves. On Africa Brasil, Ben's sound has evolved into a driving brand of melodic but heavy hitting 70s Brazilian funk & soul. The result is simply dynamite.
