I occasionally run across articles bemoaning that bloggers are not journalists. And, to be honest, I have to agree with that. Bloggers have an opinion – or an agenda, depending on who ask – while journalists are supposed to not have a bias. You know, fair and balanced…

As much as I had intended not to insert myself into the writing about the music, it became unavoidable. For so many of these records, there is very little – if any – information that is available. So sometimes the process of finding that tidbit of information – or that there is a lack of – becomes all there is to write about.

This is one of those records that I have very little to go on. Supposedly how the story goes, is that Ocean was a group of Lebanese musicians who moved to Côte d’Ivoire… But that is all that I’ve got.

If you have any further information, or even a scan of the record cover, please get in touch or leave a comment.

Catalog number SID 30 on Société Ivoirienne du Disque of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, released 1977.



Awesome track. A stand out.

Hi there. Have been following your blog for a while but never commented before (or at least, I don’t remember doing it!) I am a big fan, thanks for sharing all this.

Re:bloggers are not journalists… Too right they aren’t, often all journalists do is just copy and paste PR releases or Reuters newsfeeds… I wouldn’t worry too much about them
