    Following up on Mustapha Tettey Addy’s Les Percussions du Ghana, here’s another use of Acapulco for an album with African music released in France. This time we get to see the bold weight, in all caps, without any of the swash alternates.

    From Moos (Global Groove):

    An album by a group I really don’t know much about. Backsleeve tells us Loubassou Kifoueti Denis was born in 1948 in Brazzaville. He is guitarist, composer, singer and arranger in this band. He started out in 1965 with a group called ‘Congo Fiesta’. It lasted but a year and he moved on with le Super-Tabé de Mindouli. This formation fell apart in 7 days but L.K. Denis did not get disencouraged and started ‘Manta-Lokoka’ with saxophone player ‘Pincky’ in 1967. This orchestra lasted till 1971 when he formed ‘African Kings Pili Pili’. It was in 1973 Loubassou Kifoueti Denis and his African Kings Pili Pili returned to Congo from Libreville. This LP is from 1976 and you don’t want to miss it.
