The best of Sorry and his Orchestra on this double album personally hand picked by Sorry. The tracks on these albums are full of happy horns, upbeat danceable drummings, peaceful guitars, sunny organ and lively flute played by Sorry himself. Sorry on all vocals except one track, “Gambari”. Three of the many launguages of Mali, including Bambara, Peul and Dogon, are featured on Volume One. Excellent liner notes featured on the sleeves with a short description of each track. Song themes range from comedic stories to love songs, all tracks radiating with positive vibes. “Sekou Amadou” is the only live recording. Enjoy! = )
