Allez Oop !

I've been busy with other projects and editing the audio from my friends radio appearance. Never enough time in the day to get something posted.

– I was digging through my collection of CD’s (I have around 3000) looking for something else actually when I stumbled across something I forgot I had.

It is a compilation album released to commemorate the 1998 World Cup in France:

France 98 CD - Allez Ola Ole

… and as a present for you out there… if you want it … is the entire thing to d/load for your collection.

Allez Ola Ole: the Music of the World Cup
is a celebratory album with a samba beat. Apart from the Scottish and English contributions obviously. Africa is well represented too.

For those of you who don’t want all of it and just want a sampling, listen below. I’ve selected two stand-out tracks from the CD.

The first track is from a Brazilian act called “Skank“.

(Before I found the info about the band I did a google image search and photos of the obvious person came up.)

Skank » Skank – É Uma Partida de Futebol

Next up one from the always excellent Youssour N’Dour:

Youssou N'Dour » Youssou N’Dour and Axelle Red – Do You Mind If I Play

– For details on the whole album and a scan of the entire booklet look below the fold:

    Thanks a lot. Had bought the cassette of this album during World Cup’98. Used to listen to it then a lot with my cousin , especially Ricky Martin’s track. Will be able to relive those moments again.
