I have written about them before but it seemed that the timing is now even more serendipitous than it was the last time since I have never posted their music.

Here are Extra Golden with the track Obama

via the fantastic Jamhuri Wear blog (I am currently taking out a second mortgage to pick up some of their amazing stuff).

Thank you for your patience people, I should be back to regular transmission shortly.

One last thing before we go, Todd Hart who runs the blog Dalston Oxfam Shop left a comment with a link to his excellent blog (although the background did cause me to have an epileptic seizure, although in all truth, it is not as bad as John’s).

Be sure to take a second to check out his excellent blog

    Please check out the website http://mwanasimba.online.fr/
    The site has excellent Congolese music (Veve, Franco, Somo Somo, etc.) from the 1970s plus photos of the vinyl disks. Also lots of Swahili music. You can navigate the site in English by clicking the British flag at the bottom. I am glad I did.

    @ Jared

    Though i dont have the track, im certain that Saila is a work of Vatta Mombasa and Nyboma recorded when based in West Africa( Abidjan) late 1970s. It is where they also did the classic Double double.

    Friends, some time back there was a discussion about how it used to be possible to download videos from you-tube. Then they closed that ‘portal’. Well, after messing around on the net, I found a program that allows you to download videos from You-Tube, Google and quite a few other video sites. It then converts them to mpeg video files (videos on these sites are in the FLV format). I tried it out and it worked fine. It takes some computer know-how to get it going, but once you install it and get the drift, it’s pretty simple. The program locates the video on the website you select, you select it with a check in the box next to the title, click on ‘tube download’. It will then dowload the FLV video file and convert it to an MPEG file in one step. Just make sure you make a note of where the output is being saved otherwise you will be looking all over your computer for it. One more way to download.

    Hey Steve Jambo! whatever happened to putfile and mwanamuziki, would you know? It was another source of rare songs besides yours. I’m also looking for songs from Mpongo Love’s ‘Souvenir Souvenir’ album, anybody know? please also help on Verkey’s ‘lucani’ and ‘zonga andowe’. By the way thanks for recent posts on Tabu Ley.
