To celebrate 135 posts and counting, the Soul Safari blog has put together this nifty compilation of rare Jive & Kwela hand picked from the ILAM (International Library of African Music) Archives. This is the original sound from the Golden Era of Jive & Kwela music - back when these tunes were pressed on 78 shellac discs from tiny record companies! This is a true treasure trove of obscure African music, and unless you're deep in the 78 game, you probably have never heard anything on here! Recorded from the original 78 rpm's and professionally restored/mastered with artwork to match. Recommended.
