Over the past couple of years Acid Jazz have been re-issuing releases from the enigmatic Albarika Store label, a goldmine in Afro cuts from Benin, West Africa. The latest instalment is the ultra-rare Ogassa Original (Vol. 1), the first LP from obscure but ultimately brilliant Porto Novo group, Ogassa from 1978. Like many Albarika releases, it was recorded at EMI Lagos, giving a depth and fidelity that stands out in the realm of Afro rarities. Reissued in full with the original artwork for the very first time, this is a must have for Afro collectors and completists alike.
