This double CD set is also available as two separate lovely gatefold double LPs: Bellyachers, Listen: Songs From East Africa 1938-46 and Something is Wrong: Songs From East Africa 1952-57. When we gave this a spin yesterday I was getting well into it. Much of it is really unlike anything I've ever heard before and so really sounds very strange to me and that's what really appeals. The recordings were acquired from the HMV MA 78's collection which has been preserved in the EMI archives. It's like opening a time capsule from Africa and with the accompanying linear notes and photography it's almost possible to travel back in time and visualize the recordings of these fascinating folk musics. Ranging from sounding really weird to rhythmically exiting and heart wrenching it's a fantastic collection, superbly presented by the good people at Honest Jon's.
