Originally released in 1980 on the Alberika label, Orchestre Les Volcans du Benin Vol. 1 has long been a ‘holy grail’ LP for Afro-Cuban aficionados. It now sees it’s first official reissue on Acid Jazz Records, with four infectious tracks across the two sides, including Oya Ka Jojo – latin dancefloor dynamite and a DJ must-have. Remastered by Nick Robbins at Sound Mastering and presented in a wonderful colour sleeve, it’s an opportunity to finally own this special and highly sought after LP.
