Release #10 in Mr Bongos Africa 45 series.

A: Alèmayèhu Eshèté - Telantena Zaré

The second time Eshete - aka the Ethiopian James Brown aka Abyssinian Elvis - has appeared in the series to date. This time in jazzier form. Upbeat piano, guitar and distinctive vocals accompanied by tough but subtle drums.

Originally released on 7” on Amha Records AE 780 in 1974. Needless to say, it’s nigh on impossible to find.

AA: Girma Bèyènè - Ene Negn bay manesh

Arranged by the legendary Mulatu, ‘Ene Negn bay manesh’ is a beautifully deep groover, featuring Beyene’s vocal - unusual for him; he usually recorded instrumentals - subtle guitar, organ and horn lines.

Originally released, once again, on Ethipion label Amha Records AE 210, in 1969.
