Kassav': Vini Pou [Columbia, 1988]
It's no more filler-proof than any other disco album, and though the production has gained depth, zouk didn't develop its studio rep because the brothers Decimus laid off the special effects. Nevertheless, this major-label debut is the latest, the longest and the easiest to find LP from the guys who invented world dance music. Probably the cheapest, too. But if you run across Kassav' #5 at a discount, go for it.
