AllMusic Review by

Blaise is a superb singer who sang with such great bands as Bantous de la Capitale, before going off to be King Bee in Bénin, to the detriment of his Place in History. As these super but ill-documented recordings -- apparently from the ‘70s and early ‘80s -- document, we were missing one of the great soukous voices. Both the singing and playing are top-notch.
