Release Date:03/03/2015;Notes:Rare funk and avant-garde soul from a seven-year-old kid singer featuring the best musicians of France and the Cameroonian diaspora, recorded in Paris in 1977. The album contains two nicely dramatic tracks: Ravissante Baby (Negro Phasing) is a long, hypnotic, funky soukous track with a tremendous lead guitar and a long spoken-word and soulful kid vocal about the beauty of nature Look Up in the Sky (Negro Nature) is a stretched funk groove with psych synth by Michel Morose, bubbling bassline by the great Victor Edimo, the famous Toto Guillaume on guitar, and a brilliant poetic lyric by Francis the Great, who at that time studied in Menilmontant, Paris. Originally produced by his father, a great impresario of African artists in Paris during the '70s, and coordinated by his mother, this album is unique, fresh, and almost unclassifiable. It's universal funk! Hot Casa Records is proud to reissue this holy grail after years of research. Includes interview officially licensed with Francis Mbarga himself, in Yaounde, Cameroon.;Track List:1. A1. Ravissante Baby (Negro Phasing) (12:08);2. B1. Look Up in the Sky (Negro Nature) (12:49)
