Vintage electronic sounds from Cameroonian musician Fransis Bebey compiled. Though many know Bebey for his classical guitar compositions and pop songs (which were hits in Africa and French speaking countries), few are aware of his musings with electronic music in the '70s. This compilation from France's Born Bad Records shines light on the era from 1975 to 1982 where Bebey was experimenting with early drum machines, keyboards, organs to totally control his compositions. During this time Bebey embraced the technique of "sound on sound" recording with his new instruments (recording several tracks, sequentially juxtaposed on the same track) and the result has to be heard to be believed. Check out the awesome lo-fi synth groove of "Savannah Georgia" and "Divorce Pygmee," or the cooled out afro vibes of "New Track" and "Fleur Tropicale" for a taste. This album features 2 LPs worth of Bebey rarites making it a true gem of a record for African music lovers and fans of early electronics. Recommended.
