MANU DIBANGO - SOUL MAKOSSA ( VERSION ORIGINALE ???)
Manu's Soul Makossa appeared in various guises from 1972 - 1973
as 'Soul Makossa' or 'O'Boso' depending on Label and Country of
release and all labelled as 'Version Originale' or 'Original Version'.
LP's seem to have had a core of 5 tracks and depending on whether
O'boso or Soul Makossa, 1or 2 more tracks. 'Wildman in The City' &
'Ngosso' off O'boso and 'Lily' off Soul Makossa....neither appearing
on the other......Except for the 1973 Decca German release:
which featured all 9 Tracks from the variations.
This LP is the one I sought and purchased but have not yet Digitized.
Instead I present from my CD collection the 1994 French Musidisc
release of Soul Makossa in WAV plus the 2 missing tracks from O'Boso
'Wildman In The City' & 'Ngosso' (2 Of My Fav's ! in 24/96 courtesy
of a High Res LP Rip) to complete the 9 tracks from this period of
Original LP covers can be found at Discogs
