Review: Rail Band's self-titled record is one of the greatest, heaviest, and most sought-after guitar records from 1970s West Africa, available on vinyl for the first time in over a decade. Of humble origin, the utilitarian name Rail Band was the christening nom de plume lent to the official orchestra of Mali's state railway. Though they began as hired hands, their unique approach and playstyle - characterised by American funk, jazz and Afro-Cuban influences - helped break the Malian traditional musical mould. Thus, Rail Band took on an autonomy of their own, one which would be continually assured by the sax and trumpet playing of Tidiani Kone, the jingling guitar of Djelimady Tounkara, and the vocal diving-flights of Salif Keita and Mory Kante. Now reissued by Mississippi, this high-quality vinyl edition of their debut record comes in either black or translucent blue - take your pick.
