African Fiesta Sukisa 1966-73 Docteur Nico 05.4

Version 05.4 adds 59b Si Te Que Moura Casa and 68a Ah! Mokolo Wana.
Version 05.3 adds 69a Tika Navanda Na Ya and 69b Oye Congo.
Version 05.2 adds 49b Yo Soy Tu Dolor and 50b Para Bailar, thanks to Moos @ Global Groove.
Version 05.1 adds 68b How Mi Closen, a phonetic translation of Buddy Holly's Words Of Love 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. Maybe Nico switched from tube amplifiers to transistors? 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.

Thanks for this great music, I found some titles I didn't have.
Are you sure that "Sanduku Etundi" is the B-side of Sukisa 63?
Acording to
the B-sinde of African 90.256 Sukisa 63 is "Suzana" and I found a photo of the sleeve that seems to confirm that.
But then - where was "Sanduku Etundi" released? I couldn't find anything.
Thanks again

According to Alastair Johnson's discography, Suzanna is Sanduku Etundi under a new name. It was also apparently called Sangana on some releases. Since you seem to know what's what, would you happen to have any tracks I don't have??

Thank you for this information.
I am starting to gather some knowledge because I am interested in the music but I do not own any of these records. All I have is what I found on internet so there is nothing you have not already found, otherwise I would be happy to share. I have checked the whole "wanted.rtf"

Believe me, I own hardly any of these records, and almost all of the Nico tracks used have been found on the interwebs. Alastair Johnston's Docteur Nico discography is what inspired me to put these compilations together, highly recommended as a source of information. Happy hunting!
