INNOVATION


I came across this post on Soukousman's blog http://soukousman.blogspot.com/2008/08/orchestre-mode-success-innovation-vol3.html .
Soukousman said he had only the one volume of the eight volume INNOVATION series of Orchestre Mode Succes and Orchestre Innovation and featuring such luminaries as Bopol and Nyboma. There are indeed eight volumes that I know of, perhaps there are nine.

Volumes 2 and 5 were released together as INNOVATION PRESENTE JULIOS LUKAU VOL. 2/5, a six-song album, but there was also, as you see here, a Vol.2 that carried different versions of four of those songs. In the link at the bottom of this page, I have included the fantastic extended version of CHERIE MAKWANZA from VOL.2. If there was an actual VOL.5, I would love to hear it!


Here are the front and back covers of VOLs. 3 and 4, the last two albums in the series of Orchestre Mode Succes.




VOLs. 6 through 8 featured Nyboma & Bovi on vocals, backed by Orchestre Innovation, a group of musicians who are, sadly, never individually listed.

Notice that, although the actual bands have changed, the producer has chosen the same sultry model for the covers of VOLs. 3 and 6.

Enjoy these songs from this great series!

Geez, I didn't know there were eight volumes in this series! All I have is two different pressings of Vol. 3 - one housed in the sleeve with the female model shown here, and one with the same cover art as Vol. 1 (to complicate things even further ...)

Well then this will be a treat for for you! You will get to hear a couple of the songs that Nyboma sings for the first time. My favorite is TOUNDE MON AMOUR from VOL.8.

Great post DavidN
I need to sort out my Innovation series LPs after this post!
Confusing?

I hope that will be easy to do now that you can see the actual record sleeves, Wuod.
I am now beginning to wonder about the RENAISSANCE series. The albums in that series are numbered, like INNOVATION's INLP numbers, as RENLP.
I wonder if they were put out by the same producer and how many there were? I have only two of those.

I thought that Vol 3 & 4 of this series were pretty sweet, so the sampler is appreciated. Nice to see all the sleeves. Thanks.

DavidN,
These volumes are highly valued in Colombia.
the entire collection of the series of INNOVATION, the song "Petié, Je veux The Reconciliation" which belongs to the first volume. is also known in the Colombian coast as the "Health Health" is the most heard.

Gracias,
Fabian-

Fabian, you may be interested in following the discussion here:

It seesm that there are other published versions of some of the later volumes, recorded not as Orchestre Innovation, but as Les Kamale.

Rennaisance series?
Which ones are these DavidN that you are reffering to?

wuod k?

Ambiance Congo said...

Wuod, the two Renaissance LPs I have are solo LPs by Jean Raph Loumbet and by Ange Linaud, RENLP 001 and RENLP 002 respectively. I do not know if there were any more albums in the series.

The J R Lombe one is familiar not the Linaud one.

Thanks for posting all those covers. Sadly I only have downloads of two of the songs (Diffamation Ya Nini and Je peux attraper hypertension). Wish I could track down the rest online.

These samplers appears good, and I would like to listen to them. But, their archives are missing in the folders. Can you please ensure they are available?
