angola soundtrack 2 (double LP, £22.95)label: Analog Africa
Hypnosis, Distortions & Other Sonic Innovations 1969-1978. Comes in slipcase which includes 2 sleeves with the vinyls (A/B/C/D) and a 16-page booklet in LP size-format, hence the higher price than usual. Upon reading the characteristically generous liner notes of this new Analog Africa release, you will be given more hints of the crucial melting pot that allowed this short period to have such an outstanding productivity. Featuring 44 pages acquired in coordination with the National Library of Luanda and the art magazine 'Note E Dia', Analog Africa head honcho Samy Ben Redjeb has managed to collect newspaper clips, extremely rare pictures of the bands on stage and printed interviews from the '70s. The stunning pages of passionate photography and artistic design also include interviews with many of the original artists and their families, biographies of the three labels that made it all possible, and of Luis MontÍs, who was the pulse of the live music scene in Luanda. This compilation is a dedication to the short lived recording industry in Angola, a relatively brief period in history (between 1969 and 1978) during which three recording companies produced approximately 800 records, mostly singles. These are rare jewels, each song with a significant story and feel. You will hear exciting music blazed with the anticipation of emancipation, tracks fuelled with a sense of unity, community, importance and immediacy. This addictive, outlawed music from Angola shakes and grooves with the smoothness of staccato machine gun. Tracks: 1. Avante Juventude - Os Angos 2. Senhor Doutor - Quim Manuel 3.
