Rather than compile a greatest-hits disc to celebrate 35 years in the music business, Tabu Ley Rochereau and his International Afrisa Orchestra re-recorded songs from his remarkable career for this release. Rochereau is the king of soukous music, an infectious dance music from Zaire, and this disc finds him in strong voice with a tight-as-a-drum band. Each successive track is a more joyous experience as Huit Kilos' fluid guitar lines thread through some of the finest dance music ever made. For an instant party, throw it on.
