'Hypnosis, Distortions & Other Sonic Innovations 1969-1978'.Upon reading the characteristically generous liner notes ofthis new Analog Africa release, you will be given more hints ofthe crucial melting pot that allowed this short period to havesuch an outstanding productivity. Featuring 44 pages acquiredin coordination with the National Library of Luanda and the artmagazine 'Note E Dia', Analog Africa head honcho Samy BenRedjeb has managed to collect newspaper clips, extremely rarepictures of the bands on stage and printed interviews from the'70s. The stunning pages of passionate photography and artistic design also include interviews with many of the originalartists and their families, biographies of the three labelsthat made it all possible, and of Luis Montês, who was thepulse of the live music scene in Luanda. This compilation is adedication to the short lived recording industry in Angola, arelatively brief period in history (between 1969 and 1978)during which three recording companies produced approximately800 records, mostly singles. These are rare jewels, each songwith a significant story and feel.
