A typical sprinkling of singular Zazou magic on this partnership between the prolific cross-cultural collaborator and Congolese singer Papa Wemba.  The A-side played at full-speed is a spirited soukous / rumba affair with live drums and tight, dancing guitar lines, yet the B-side flipped to wrong speed (33 + a little bit - as in the clip here) transforms into a low-slung, heavily dubbed Afro-cold wave oddity, sharing a genetic makeup with the incredible cut 'I Love You S' on the much adorned, Zazou featuring masterpiece 'La Perversita'.  Getting trickier to find..
