In 1975, Orchestra Super Mazembe finally arrived in Nairobi having left Za´re some 5 years before. Their first years were lean, but in 1977 they scored a huge hit with the single Kassongo, and from that point on their fortunes lay in East Africa. They were incredibly productive; by 1984 they had released 42 singles under the Editions Mazembe imprint alone, and they toured relentlessly. This crucial selection from the late 1970s of one of the most successful of all East African dance orchestras gathers together some of Mazembe's most popular 45rpm singles which have never before been released on CD.

'Earthmovingly glorious East African gem' (fRoots April 2013)
