Sleeve / vinyl: VG / VG
Unknown LP by the great Orchestre Minzoto, a young progressive Congolese band who came out of the Kinshasa cowboys subculture. Some of their work is very traditional or rumba based and others are pure afro rock psych gems; on this album the entire first half is like that! Uptempo percussion heavy, funky bass and psych rumba inflected guitars, sounding unlike much else from the era. This is also the hardest Minzoto LP to find (it has the same sleeve pic as two of their albums, easy to confuse). Ask for snippets. Vinyl has a few paper scuffs and light surface marks, plays without noise; sleeve has wear on edges, ringwear especially on back.
