(June 13, 2015): Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou Dahomey – It’s A Vanity

From the early 1970s single (7″, 45rpm), It’s a Vanity / I’m So Sorry.  This prolific band from Benin has been together for 49 years.  They’ve drawn from a host of influences and have played a mix of styles including afrobeat, highlife, jazz, soul, rhumba and latin music.  This single is a rarity and back in 2012 went for US$291.00 on Ebay.
