Since I first heard Soukous bands in Paris in the 80s, I'm infected. So I was very happy when I came across a few of these records lately. But unluckily if a Congolese or Nigerian record has not been severely mistreated, it can't be a good one. They are mostly full of dust, scratches, dirt, even candle wax and, please believe me, chewing gum. I tried many tricks to clean and repair them, with brushes, alcohol, finger nails, and finally even a sewing needle, and against my habits I used automatic click repair for this rip. Apart from a few minor pops the sound is excellent now, and this will be the best rip until we find a better one. The music is just too magic to be missed. Enjoy!
