  • £22.99

Featuring music by Muluqèn Mèllèssè, Alemayehu EsheteGetachew Kassa, Mulatu Astatke, Muluken Melesse and others, Ethiopian Hit Parade Vol.2 contains some of the greatest Ethiopian hits of the early-'70s.

After releasing about fifty singles and his first LP (Ethiopian Modern Instrumental Hits), the hugely influential Ethiopian producer Amha Eshèté, who passed away in April 2021, undertook in 1972 to collect his best productions released on singles in a series of albums that have become mythical collectors' items. The first four volumes of Ethiopian Hit Parade were released in September and October 1972, and the fifth in January 1973. Finally, these albums are being lovingly reissued by Heavenly Sweetness, complete with the original sleeve art.
