This is a classic compilation album of Congolese music probably released by EMI in Nigeria in the mid to late 70s. Includes six classic songs by T.P.O.K. Jazz, led by Francois Luambo Makiadi Lokanga La Djo Pene, one of the most important rumba congolese singers since the 50's, Verckys & L'Orch Veve led by Kiamuangana Mateta, and by Orchestre Bella Bella & Lola. This is a very good album that shows the true spirit of the 70's Rumba Congolese, who absorbed Cuban music and Afro beats. The performance of the Congolese at this time is also very warmer and better. This is the original Nigerian version on blue vinyl.

A1: Orchestre Bella Bella “Made”
B3: Franco & L’O.K. Jazz “Imfidelite”
