El Rego is a legendary musician from Benin that is getting some much needed attention outside of Benin and Nigeria. Daptone recently released a compilation of his work from the 60s and 70s. It really is a nice entry point for all things El Rego. His music has been on other West African compilations, but this is the first one solely dedicated to him. Get it.
El Rego today. He’s amazed, and touched that people in the West are finally digging what he did over 40 years ago.
The first track on the LP is Feeling You Got.
