{155} Poly-Rythmo's 7"on Albarika + WILD JERK listen ! ♫

The best was done to collect and present singles of Poly-Rythmo on small labels. 
Now it is time to complete their impressive discography with -Albarika Stores- singles.

"Poly-Rythmo was the star band of this label and his owner 
*****Adissa Seidou*****. He was born on April 8th 1929 and passed away in 1988. He started importing bicycle parts then vinyl records and all sorts of electronic equipment, specially radios and record players. Because  of his love for traditional music he decided to go into music production. His first recording, done in 1968 was a success and he ventured into modern music.

Things became very serious when he recorded Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de CotonouAt that time Adissa thought it would be just another recording, although he was crazy about the track "Angelina", which was the initial reason why he approached that group. All the other Poly-Rythmo compositions were of no interest to him, but a wild fire was about to spread with "Gbeti Madjro" and that's the side  (flip of  "Angelina") which sold the record.

This notes are from *****Samy Ben Redjeb***** on *Echos Hypnotiques* see chapter {69}.
This -Albarika Stores- singles discography  is also relaying Samy's work for Analog Africa his label:

That wild jerk listen was the first track I heard by Poly-rythmo (on David Byrne's compilaton "Love is a Real Thing"). Always been sad that it fades out. Hopefully someday someone will release the full version from the master tapes if they still exist.
