Orchestre Poly Rythmo It's A Vanity / Nougbo Vehou

    Acid Jazz
    • Orchestre Poly Rythmo – It's A Vanity
    • Orchestre Poly Rythmo – Nougbo Vehou
    • 1. It's A Vanity
    • 2. Nougbo Vehou

    The legendary Afro funk fusionists Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou Dahomey have got unlimited amounts of big tunes in their back catalogue and the fiery 'It's A Vanity' is one of them. It has fat and chunky drums with trademark horns leading the way next to the impassioned vocals. The tune twists and turns on a vibe as it funks you up and then on the flip is the more lo-fi and stripped back, earthen funk sounds of 'Nougbo Vehou' (La Verite Blesse). Anotehr killer 7" reissue from this great collective.
