1990-1995: The Best of the African Years [Import]
(Digipack Packaging, England - Import)
Following the success of their second album "Dimanche a Bamako", the brilliance of that album has listeners' appetites whetted for more. Thus, here is a collection of songs they recorded prior to 2005. These 16 tracks date from the early 1990's when the duo left their native Mali due to lack of opportunities and settled in the capitol of the Ivory Coast, Abidjan. These songs were previously available only on cassette. Uncut Magazine proclaims, "... stinging electric guitar lines sound earthier and more blues-drenched than ever, making comparisons with the minimalist roots of the White Stripes irresistible."
