Soul Makossa 2. Lily 3. Dangwa Three Points 4. O Boso 5. New Bell Hard Pulsation 6. Nights in Zeralda 7. Hibiscus. This is the original mix of the famous Soul Makossa album from Manu Dibango, loaned to me by a dear friend who tells me this was mix used for the African market, with the drums and percussion mixed higher than the version released in Europe during the 1970s. The huge single from this album (released before the LP) launched Dibango’s international career and spawned many cover versions around the world.
