Groovy progressive folk debut from Algerian musician Djamel Allam. Recorded in France in 1976 with a large-sized studio ensemble. Samples all day, for you beatdiggers out there. The arrangements are slick and basslines liquid up in this piece. Tracks 1, 6 & 8 are my favorites. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly. Enjoy!
Great find, Nick!
Where in the world do you record shop?
ha! you should know that i can’t tell you that, holly. sike. i found this allam record for cheap on ebay awhile back. i’m only now starting to dive into ebay & discogs buying, though. most of what i’ve posted so far comes from my backlog as a used vinyl buyer at plan 9 music (in VA), thrifting (also in VA), and shopping at exiled, mississippi & clinton street records (here in portland). thrifting in this town bites.
MANY, MANY THANKS…
madlib has sampled the first track. Great album in its own right. Keep on thanks for sharing so much excellent music
