(Nov. 10, 2014): Jorge Ben – Ponta de Lança Africano (Umbabarauma)

The opening track from the 1976 album, África Brasil.  This is, perhaps, Ben’s best known release.  Ben sued Rod Stewart for using track 5, “Taj Mahal”, from the LP in his hit “Do You Think I’m Sexy”.  The suit was settled after Stewart agreed to donate the royalties from his song to UNICEF.
