Assalam Aleikoum Africa Vol. 1

A compilation of singles released by Societé Ivoirienne du Disque. The label was founded in 1974 in the Ivorian capital of Abidjan by producer Catherine Oro. At its time, it was one of the first facilities for both recording and pressing on the continent. The tracks sound pretty unique compared to the music I'm familiar with produced in other West African countries circa 1975. Let me know if you run across a full length LP of any of these artists.
