5 Revolutions

Before the completists get all uppity, I know that this download is NOT the entire album. However, this is just too fun to keep to myself, maybe you can track down a complete version of it. 5 Revolutions were yet another delicious pop-psych group from Zambia. Recently I learned that many of these great Zambian recordings we have been loving here were made possible through the tireless work of Mr. Edward Khuzwayo, a Zambian promoter and music entrepeneur. Sadly Khuzwayo passed away recently. His very informative obituary can be read here. R.I.P Mr. Khuzwayo, here's the 5 Revolutions.

These are all filler except You Don't Know me... I don't know what all these amazing comments are about. You could probably post the Agathocles/Psycho split say its great and have everyone agree with you.

Man I love this group! I also found this on Awesome Tapes from Africa originally and they instantly became one of my all time favorites. Remind me a lot of early Can actually but with a groove that just melts in the pocket. Very very nice post!

I lived and worked in Zambia at the time the 5 revolutions were at their best. Used to have two albums, but theij got lost on transition from Zambia to Holland. Fun to hear the songs again
