Various Artists - The Very Best of Ethiopiques (2007)

'Ethiopiques' is a compilation series, with each album featuring tracks released during the 60s and 70s in Ethiopia - this double-album is considered to be the very best of these tracks.

To call it jazz is misleading, to call it Ethiopian is vague; minor melodies, haunting horns, syncopated beats and gritty shouts and screams are some of what you can expect.

    Overall this is a great album but it does have one or two dodgy tracks which you will instantly recognise and delete so as not to spoil your utter delight with the remainder.

    Fucking superb comp, and after trawling through the rest of the series definitely the pinnacle. Love the warm & fuzzy, tape-saturated tones.
