This early morning's Horsehead Nebula might be The Most Horsehead of Nebulas in a long time. I'm taking the show back to its roots with track overlays, drone songs, etc. The tracklist shows everything played on the show, however, few of those songs can be heard by themselves. I dig it. As always, thank you for listening.

What were you listening to in 1978? If you were around then, the answer is probably "disco" -- for a couple of years there, you pretty much couldn't avoid it. And things were similar in Africa, where disco was widespread, popular and influential. This week on Global A Go-Go, you'll hear a few examples of late 70's Afro-disco like the South African group Harari (pictured above).
Also this week: it's cumbia time!, a set of music from Zimbabwe, and some mariachi and banda influenced songs.
