If you are wondering about the title: so am I. It is part of one of the titles of this cassette released by Bellot in 1982. There are more mysteries in the titles; in fact the whole of the B-side only has titles in English: "Character...", "A Sweet Pleasant Woman" and "Competitor...". What's the deal with these titles? Why in English?
Not a word of English is sung on this cassette by Dieuf Dieul, and listening to the music there is no doubt that this is a band from Senegal. I have read somewhere (but I can't recall where) that there are several bands called Dieuf Dieul. And listening to this cassette I am not entirely convinced the whole cassette was recorded by one band. The last two tracks remind me of the early work of Super Diamano, with a strong presence of an electric piano. The other songs are more like Etoile or Number One, with tama's and lots of guitars.
The vocals on both 'types' are great though. Personally I particularly like the singer in the faster tracks on the A-side. My favourite is the second track, awkwardly titled "Treme Dous. Passionaly Ragûati" , - although I suspect it's just a version of "Yobalema"....
