Z - In Berlin

1980 was the year I've seen the Specials playing in Berlin. The band together with Rico Rodriguez and Dick Cuthell blew me away. During his short time in Berlin Rico was invited into Paragon studio near Bundesallee.

A new band was recording their first single, "Legalize Erdbeereis", a funny song over a ska beat. With a typic horn line Rico made it to the local summer hit; and he gave some more of his music to another song, "Der Geist".

Finally the band released this LP "In Berlin" in summer of 1980. It's not a record for the island, but an example of music coming out of Berlin at the time. Listen and I hope you will enjoy!

Youssou N'Dour - Xippi Vol. 2

Some time ago I offered Xippi 1. So I have to add Xippi No. 2, which came with a white instead of the black cover. I just realised that there are seven tracks instead of six indicated on the cover. I hope that you will enjoy it!

Orchestre Cobantou - Linga Ngai Charlotte Komba (African 90.509 B)

Too much time's pasing by without a post by my side. So here is a wonderful single by Orchestre Cobantou - with a cool rhythm on side 1 by Nono Noel and a very sweet song on face 2 by Dewayon. From 1971. Enjoy it!

The lion sleeps tonight ... a bit later!
