Congo Records

Along with their 16 channel recording studio and retail outlet in downtown Barranquilla, Felito also set up a distribution business, licensing and releasing popular African and Antillean records for sale within the coastal region.  It is from this effort that we have the final section of the Felito Records catalogue: the Congo Records series.

Its nice to see the progression of the cover-design over the years covered by this catalogue–there is some really terrifyingly late-eighties stuff towards the end here!  Previous sections of the catalogue are here: Felito 1, Felito 2, Serie Curramba, Linea Especial  I dont know whose idea the gum sticking to the bottom of the chucks motif was but the shoe with headphones on is a far better choice.
