legends of benin

For their fifth release, the incredible Analog Africa label has compiled 14 “super rare and highly danceable masterpieces recorded between 1969 -1981 by four legendary composers from Benin” on the aptly titled Legends of Benin. I’m really digging the whole thing at the moment, especially Gnonnas Pedro‘s stirring “agbadja modern” and the blazing “afro-funk-soul” of El Rego et sus Commandos. On par with last year’s badass African Scream Contest comp, and the cover art (above) looks really nice too. Worth tracking down on 2xLP if you can; should be more widely available later this month.
