El Rego is a true legend of African Soul Music. Here for the first time on album are 12 of his greatest recordings from the late 60s and early 70s hand-picked by Daptone Records. Afro-Soul collector/ DJ Frank Gossner had spent years combing West Africa tracking down 45s by Theophile Do Rego (aka El Rego) before finally meeting him face to face in his home in Benin. From that relationship came this album, which we present to you here in a 20 page hardcover Bookcase CD featuring El Regos own story of his life and music along with pictures from his personal collection and artwork from his original 45s. The music has been remastered with great care, and the vinyl contains an exclusive BONUS 45 (while supplies last) of Se Na Min, one of his most sought after afro-funk tracks, backed with E Ma Non Tin Me, a beautiful and somewhat more traditional song about two blind men who agree to go together and leap to their deaths into a river.
