Celebrating 10 years (or so) of unauthorized Staalplaat release, MMOJ found great way to do it right, placing this bootleg online for free download)))

Here's what they tell about this tape:
"In 1980, The Master Musicians of Jajouka embarked upon their first tour outside of Morocco - playing in several European cities including London, Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam among others. This was a very interesting time for the band, as they were quite strong under the leadership of Bachir Attar’s father, Hadj Abdeselam El Attar, and included many members of the older and younger generations. In 1982 when Bachir’s father passed away, he continued his father’s legacy of strong leadership as a young master in his early twenties.
This recording was a bootleg tape initially released, against the wishes of the band, by Staaltape in the early 1990s. Recently, it has been disseminated online under the false name "The Master Musicians of Joujouka." The word "Joujouka," as many MMoJ fans know, was a misspelling of the village name "Jajouka" by Brian Jones and was put to print by the Rolling Stones in 1971 when they released "Brian Jones Presents the Pipes of Pan in Joujouka." In the 1990s, with the cooperation of the Stones, MMoJ re-released the Brian Jones record with the correct spelling of the village name Jajouka. It should be noted that, despite some recent confusion, the Master Musicians have never released any other recording using the misspelled "Joujouka" name. There is, however, a Japanese techo band named "Joujouka" - who received permission from Bachir Attar to use the Brian Jones misspelling for their band name.
In hopes of clearing up this confusion, The Master Musicians of Jajouka are pleased to present, directly to their fans, this original bootleg recording - digitally remastered - available as a free streaming player or MP3 download directly from our Myspace/ReverbNation pages. Bachir Attar and the Master Musicians of Jajouka recently performed rousing renditions of several classics from this 1980 show, like "Joul Sibladi Joul" & "Aitar" at their recent performances in Lisbon and Montreal. Enjoy this rare gem of The Master Musicians of Jajouka with Bachir Attar, lead by Hadj Abdeselam El Attar - on tour in Paris, France 1980."
