***NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL!!! From The French Caribbean, 1963-74. Often overlooked in the English-speaking Caribbean, the scattering drums and soaring clarinets of the biguine ruled the airwaves and dancefloors of Martinique and Guadeloupe in the 1960s. This album showcases the vibrancy of the scene on the islands in the '60s and '70s—a scene that would go on to develop the all-conquering sound of zouk in the '80s. Uptown bands like ENSEMBLE LA PERFECTA and LES LOUPS NOIRS combine heavy rhythms and psychedelic effects in an inimitable style. The deep and introspective sounds of MONSIEUR DOLOR and Guadeloupean hero ROBERT LOISON show the deep African roots of the music. Overlooked outside of Paris, Montreal and the French Caribbean for many years, this collection redresses the balance by presenting the vital sounds of Martinique and Guadeloupe—missing pieces of the musical jigsaw puzzle of the Caribbean. CD includes a 24-page booklet with detailed historical notes and rare photos.
