Langa Langa Stars - Verckys presente Stars Langa Langa Vol. 1 (1981?)
Delightful, lilting rumba from 'the seven bosses'. Knockabout vocal harmonies and flamboyant guitar work make this a winner. Weirdly, the first track just stops when the band are in mid flow, as if the producer cut the tape. This is not dodgy recording, but as the music appears (or disappears) on the vinyl. Oh well.
Here's a clip from Congolese TV, those boys are looking sharp:
01 Avenir Mbeya Mbeya
02 Tantine Betena
03 Autopsie Beloti
04 Mase Femme Africaine
