Orchestre Poly-RythmoThe 1st Album (Analog Africa)
James Brown, Parliament-Funkadelic, Fela Kuti: the funk band overlords. Into this mystic come four tracks – two previously unreleased – from Benin's Kings of Vodoun. Cut one afternoon in 1973, its 33 minutes of French-kissed Afrobeat rings iron bell tones of raw percussion that outline an electric current of guitars and a tidal bleat of brass. Twelve-minute centerpiece "La La La La" irrigates the fourth precious CD available by this demon crew.
