About this item

Over the past few years Acid Jazz has released a series of reissues from the enigmaFc ‘Albarika Store’ – a goldmine of records from Benin, West Africa from the late ‘60s through to the early ’80s.

T.P. Orchestre Poly-Rythmo ‘Le Sato 2’ is a parFcularly obscure release. The follow up to ‘Le Sato’, the album was originally sold in exactly the same sleeve as the first volume, with the new catalogue number simply wriQen on the back!

This reissue marks the first proper release of the record, with a sleeve incorporaFng original design in a new, disFncFve and authenFc colourscheme. This Fme the track list and labels are correct, giving the album pride of place in the essenFal T.P Orchestre Poly-Rythmo, Albarika and Benin musical library.

The record itself sees Benin’s premier group in characterisFc form – hypnoFc, heavy, heady Afro-Funk, under the leadership of ‘Prince’ Melome Clement. A must-have for Afro collectors and passing fans alike.
