Details / Info

Rare early 60's tracks by Dr Nico and Rochereau as they were still both members of the African Fiesta. Includes classic Congolese Rumba and Cha-Cha, one of them is credited to Orchestra Aragon. Previously released on their own 'Vita' label ca. 1963 as 2 singles. The Rumba track 'Rendez-Vous Chez Labas' -released as Vita V1- became a Rochereau classic. Also take a listen to the beautiful Bolero track 'Moto Abungaka' and its tearful Dr Nico's solo.
Solid VG+ sleeve shows some aging and writings at back. Record looks as a decent VG+ but plays with constant surface noise. Still enjoyable!
