2008 release. The second volume in Stern's three-volume Rail Band retrospective, Belle Epoque Volume 2: Mansa contains a number of rare recordings made by the Rail Band in the early '70s, featuring the talents of the Malian songwriting prodigy Salif Kieta, as well as a host of other selections featuring Malian singers like Sekou Kante and Magan Ganessy. Though these compilations provide an admirably thorough overview of the Rail Band's discography, they are not arranged chronologically. On this volume, early '70s cuts featuring the golden-voiced Kieta often sit somewhat uneasily beside equally stellar, but stylistically distinct, offerings from later in the Rail Band's career. Stern's Belle Epoque series offers the listener unparalleled access to the Rail Band's sprawling and influential body of work. Full-color, 20-page booklet with notes detailing the history of the band and full-page reproductions of original album covers.
