V.A. - OPIKA PENDE: AFRICA AT 78 RPM (4CD & BOOK)


"Opika Pende: Africa at 78rpm is a 4-CD collection featuring 100 tracks taken from rare 78rpm recordings of African music (1909 to mid-1960s), none of which have ever been issued on CD until now. Pan-African in scope and wildly diverse, Opika Pende is a testament to the deep riches found in early recorded music across the continent. The box set features a 112-page softcover book with 4 CDs in separate portfolio ­ all housed in a deluxe cloth slipcase. The compiler, Jonathan Ward, is a Los Angeles-based collector, researcher, and writer. In 2007, he began the well-known website Excavated Shellac, which features a wide-range of scarce, international 78rpm records from across the globe with extensive commentary." (label info)
