Mississippi Records' Lullabies and Dream Songs

Brilliancy Medley's Derek Jenkins recently linked me to a rip of an excellent cassette, Mississippi Records' Lullabies and Dream Songs. The title is fairly self-explanatory, so naturally the songs are right up No Words' alley. The cassette was released in 2010 and posted by the also-excellent Root Blog that same year. It was reposted earlier this week. Here are four excerpts, including Afunakwa's "Rorogwela," which was sampled on Deep Forest's hit "Sweet Lullaby":

Afunakwa • "Rorogwela" • 1969

Itsutsu No Akai Fusen • "I Will Kick a Pebble" • 1971

Areski & Brigitte Fontaine • "Les Murailles" • 1974
Stream in Spotify

Yoko Ono • "Remember Love" • 1969
