Most, if not all, of these tracks have been released on CD and I still prefer the cassettes from Touba Auto K7. Especially these from Number One de Dakar.
They feature Pape Seck, with his voice reminiscent of bars, red wine (of the type which no Frenchman will touch with a long pole) and loose women. Just listening to his voice transfers me to those places, in Dakar, Bamako....
Here is a list of the other musicians playing, and here's the second volume of these wonderful Touba Auto cassettes of Number One.
