I don't even have any words that can come close to describing how special this collection is. Vol 1 graced these pages last year, but I don't want to tell you that one is better than the other because both are absolutely essential. Beautiful, innocent, brilliant sonic missives from all over the Continent, this vinyl compilation from Mississippi came and went in a heartbeat, but we are fortunate to have some entrepreneur who thought that $5 bootleg tapes were their ticket to Easy Street....fortunate to have someone who sees the importance of a collection like this one. Just hitting the highlights, you'll hear FRANCIS MwaKITIME, SIBANDA, JEAN BOSCO MWENDA, DANIEL KATUGA, ABDUL KARIM EL KABLY, and FRANCIS BEBEY's epic "Black Tears," a track that simply defies description. Several pieces from uncredited (and/or unknown) artists ("Kru Song" is particularly engrossing) round out almost 90 minutes of essential sounds that are so far above my humble ceiling that I feel like a fool even talking about them....so just listen.
