Label: Philips – Ph 108

Artist: Menelik Wossenatchew / Telela Kebede

A/B Side: Aderetch Arada / Kelemewa

Grade: EX (shop stock)

2 sides cut by Haile Selassie’s Imperial Bodyguard Band.

Menelik Wossenatchew’s operatic vocal prowess is clear on Adarech Arada. It’s about a hip little area in Addis where active young ladies would gather and what they got up to when their mothers weren’t watching..gulp!

The b side is a great theatrical piece with backing chorus.

A Side: Aderetch Arada

B Side: Kelemewa
