Los Yetis “Revolucionando” from Los Yetis: Historia Musical - 40 Éxitos (Discos Fuentes 2008) —Columbian psychedelia
" Compilation of the wildest moments of the best sixties garage-pop band from Colombia. 21 Nadaist (revolutionary pre-punk movement) tracks about war, revolution and girls. Both formats include previously unseen band photos and extensive notes. In 1966, a certain go-go fever takes over Medellín. The name of the virus: LOS YETIS. The city, one of the most conservative in Colombia, started to feel the shakes in its foundations as thousands of teenagers danced to the new sound, willing to distance themselves from the tango and bolero favoured by their parents. To achieve this, what better than the go-go spirit embodied by a fury and abominable snowman? Their true entrance to the music industry comes in February 1966 through the record label Discos Fuentes, with the support of a promotion strategy unheard-of in Colombia until then. They would become the new idols of thousands of teenagers infected by the go-go craze that The Beatles had originated a few years earlier. Los Yetis combined covers of international hits with their own songs, which, even if a little tame, had a wild spirit and lyrics with attitude set to beat, surf and garage rhythms."-Liner notes.

Chief Brigadier Olu Oni & His Marathon System “Juju Marathon System Jam 1” (unknown) —Juju is Nigerian popular music based on Yoruban pecussion with electric guitars added in the 1960's
" A heavy juju set from Chief Brigadier Oluoni – working here in a version of the style that's much grittier one "Juju Marathon System Jam" that spans the course of both sides – a very offbeat version of the juju groove that often has a spacey sound in the echo, and lots of weirdly-tuned guitar parts that give the recording a very dark edge – even in some of the brighter moments! Vocals have lots of odd echo too, and when they drop out, the guitar parts get even weirder"
