More Live Youssou

As promised, here is another "live" recording by Youssou N'Dour & le Super Etoile de Dakar, the cassette Live Olympia (Productions SAPROM), recorded in Paris and released in 1991.

Live Olympia finds Youssou & the band in the more simplified mode they exhibited, at least in the international market, after achieving world fame in the mid '80s. The music is "catchier" and the performances shorter and less complex than in the earlier Jamm La Paix. Still, this is a recording well worth listening to, with a nice rendition of "Immigrés" and interesting alternate versions of some other Super Etoile hits.

Thanks for sharing this, very nice music! However, track #5 is corrupt, can you please re-up this one? Thanks!

I take it you're referring to track #5 in the zipped file? I'll check it out, but in the meantime you can download track 5, "Medina," from the post. Just right-click, and click "save file as. . ."

Hmm... it shouldn't have been too hard to think of that myself ... guess I need more caffeine. I'll listen to this record and feel embarrassed. Thanks again for sharing this! Marc

John, thanks for both of these YN'D posts. I Like the previous (Jamm) a bit more than Olympia, but both are appreciated!
