Ali Farka Toure 1987/1993 Radio Sessions

Just today I catched the 4th track I was missing from Ali Farka Toure's 1987 studio session he did for Andy Kershaw BBC Radio1.

[seems made at the Festival in the Desert 2003]
Originally I thought that this was the so called "Kershaw Kitchen Session", which I have posted earlier, but quickly it became clear that this is a real studio session done before the "pots & pans" recordings by Kershaw himself.
As this session is "only" 4 tracks, uploaded it together with the 1993 session Ali did together with Ry Cooder for KCRW Morning becomes Eclectic [not available anymore on the KCRW site].
