Slowly and bit by bit the african 360.000 list is growing to a
hopeful completion some fine day. This is no 33 or 360.033
as you wish, a quite funny LP. The first 5 songs are Congolese,
and sung in Lingala. But when you turn the album and start track
6 and 7, you’re in for the big surprise. Suddenly you think you’re
listening to someone else. Two songs in English, then two in French,
and it ends with a rock and roll song. Something one doesn’t really
expect behind a sleeve like this one. Originally it looked like the
small picture shown. Crazy to hear,….”only youóuóu…”

Another to add to the bulging 360 folder that I will hopefully get to hear before I die! THANKS for your generosity.
“L’Incomparable” is no brag, just fact. Face B is so BAD it’s GOOD! I have no doubt I am going to have “Hey Ba Be Rebol” goin’ though my mind for days to come. Thanks, Moos!
Listening to it now, it’s crazy cool.
Thanks a lot for this one, I’ve never heard of the Artist but the LP is fantastic.
Thanks for sharing Moos. This is wonderful. Apurva from Pune, India.
Unbearable. Even the Lingala language songs sound unwillingly so, as if by a foreigner.
Thanks for this congo music. Very good as usual.
