This is a real treat, and it seems that this rather hard to find LP unfortunately is the last I can post from this label, at least for a while. I thought I had one or two more but I am unable to locate those right now.

Anyhow, this LP, together with the Madagascar one, that I posted earlier, are my favourite of all the LP's on this label, and it makes me very happy to share this one as I am already certain of some of the reactions by some followers of this blog. It has lots of the "being there" feeling and it is full ov "organic instruments" like playing on leafs etc. Just like I like it! Hope you enjoy, and don't forget to tell me if you find other titles on this label.


Note that track B1 & B2 should be played gapless it is one track on the LP but listed
as two on the label and back of sleeve.

A3 Bir Güzel Bahcem Var Benim - J'ai un très jolie jardin 3'55
A4 Koca Tanri - Grand Dieu 4'57

B2 Cöplükte - Dans les poubelles 5'03
B3 Agla Gönlüm - Pleure mon cœur 9'45




Another good record fallen into oblivion. No CD reissues that I know of. Actually I have not found any other records by this singer published outside Turkey and the ones in Turkey seems to be long out of print as well. A biography of Asik Nesimi Çimen and all the lyrics are included in the bilingual (french and english) liner notes. All music is by Asik Nesimi, the A-side has lyrics by traditional poets and the B-side is his own poetry. A mild burning fire emanates from his gentle playing and glowing lyrics.

There are some outstanding recordings on this label and I will continue to post more until I run out of them.

I am trying to reconstruct the catalogue of this Label also associated with Alvarez, so any information is most welcome.

Apart from the Afghan and Madagascar LP's, that I posted previously, there are LP's from Rapa Nui, Cambodia and Turkey. Most likely there are some more to be found as well.


Here is a title I would like to hear if possible:

Chants et danses des Sioux. (Anthologie de la musiques des peuples.) SFPP AMP ????. [1964-1975]

Madagascar!

Dance and seance...

Great strings, that should put any good person in a better mood!


Here is a record forgot I had but a fellow Luobaniyan sent me a question asking what the music was that I had copied for him almost thirty years ago on a mixtape and oddly? enough I remembered immediately.

It turned out that it was one of those Amalgam records I have been wanting to
post so long. It is a great record. I love the whole record but especially like to point out
track A2, A3, that really stand out!



Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
