An overload of great stuff this week, David.
The new tracks from Savanet Depitcho and Lassa L'Acolyte sounded really good - though the latter looks a tad sinister on the CD cover. Also, I can't believe that you're still able to debut ancient LPs like ORCHESTRE RUMBA RAY DE MARAY-MARAY. The track off that one is a scorcher - why hasn't that seen airplay before now and how many unplayed LPs are left in the vault?
Was it a first outing for the Djo Nolo LP as well? Magnificent.
Cheers.

Once again I'm glad that you liked the program, Dave, and that you have posted such supportive commentary.
Lassa's disc is dedicated to the "sole source of my inspirations and endeavors, Jesus Christ" so I don't think he intended to look sinister LOL.
I don't know how many albums or discs I have that I have yet to premiere on the program. I used to present the show on another station beginning about 15 years ago. I may have played a number of these "ancient" recordings back then. I mark the tracks off when I play them as I try not to play the same track twice except by request. After all these years a lot of tags on almost all of my older albums are all marked off, but I cannot recall when I played them so I just don't play them unless, for some reason, I check the Audio Archives and don't find them listed there. So it is for the Djo Nolo CD and Rumba Ray LP.
I'm sure there are albums I've never played on air...a whole lot of 80s soukous Paris-style for example. I don't know why I bought so much of that back then. It all sounds alike to me now. I should probably go mine it for the great tracks I've forgotten that are surely in there.

By the way, Dave, don't you love the Rumba Ray sleeve where photo merges with cartoon? Extremely cool!

Dave, Liverpool UK said...

I hadn't noticed Maray Maray's cartoon feet, I just thought he'd been over-zealous brushing his shoes.
As for venturing into a Soukous mine, you're a braver man than me!

excellent DJ Daudi could change these albums between the two

DJ Daudi said...

Thanks Ricardo.
Not sure what you mean about the change, though.
