African Fiesta Sukisa 1966-? Docteur Nico 05.3

07/06/13 repost adds 69a Tika Navanda Na Ya and 69b Oye Congo to Part Two.
05/04/13 repost adds 49b Yo Soy Tu Dolor and 50b Para Bailar, thanks to Moos @ Global Groove.
04/23/13 repost adds 68b How Mi Closen, a phonetic Buddy Holly translation via Beatles For Sale. 'How mi closen, tummy now you feel...'
In 1965 African Fiesta split apart, with Docteur Nico carrying on as African Fiesta Sukisa while Tabu Ley Rochereau and band manager Roger Izeidi set up African Fiesta 66 and then African Fiesta National. I've divided what I have of Nico's Sukisa singles tracks into two posts. Plenty of great stuff here, as expected, although I miss the ambiance of the Vita stuff. Tubes vs. transistors, maybe? These have been gathered from vinyl and CDs and downloads including YouTube, so bitrates and sound quality vary considerably. Thanks again to Alastair Johnston for his Docteur Nico Discography (new improved second edition now available), without which these humble compilations would not exist.  
There are two very different versions of Exhibition Dechaud. I now believe the 2:34 track belongs with the fourth collection of Vita singles, the 3:37 one here. Which would mean that the N'Gola 45 reissue of Sukisa 71 posted on YouTube, where I grabbed the b-side, has African Fiesta on one side and African Fiesta Sukisa on the other. But don't quote me. This post and Docteur Nico 04 have been revised.
