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
