Les Bantous de la Capitale (Fiesta 360.118)

This record is part of the African 360 series with another label. This LP was shared by Moos two years ago, but as his DL link is still dead I decided to share it for the new ones among us with a rip of my copy.

Les Bantous are good as ever.

Enjoy! (Link in the comments)

Orchestre Los Angel (African 90.048)

Today we have a single from the African label, released in 1966. Orchestre Los Angel is mentionel in Gary Stewart's book: we can read that it was lead by Albert Missia who called himself Robin. There are two tracks on L'Afrique Danse Vol. 2 as well as on Vol. 3.

They continued in the early 70s as Surprise Los Angel. Some more singles apeared on the Fiesta label. Discography at Jama Rico.

Here are two more tracks. Enjoy!

Orchestre African Jazz (Decca 71.070)

An early African Jazz single with a Merengue credited to Nico and - yes: "The Last Dance" on the flip side.

The quailty is low but as I haven't seen this single in Alastair Johnston's discography, I decides to share it here. Maybe it's been released under another title as there are several Merengues in the list?!

Have a listen!
