Album artwork for Le Sato 2 by T.P. Orchestre Poly-Rythmo

Over the past few years Acid Jazz has released a series of reissues from the enigmatic ‘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 particularly 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 written on the back! This reissue marks the first proper release of the record, with a sleeve incorporating original design in a new, distinctive and authentic colour- scheme. This time the track list and labels are correct, giving the album pride of place in the essential T.P Orchestre Poly-Rythmo, Albarika and Benin musical library.

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