Are you into Fela Kuti? Or did you never get around to exploring the prodigious recorded output of Nigeria’s king of Afrobeat?
Now comes news that Knitting Factory Records will remaster and reissue Fela’s entire catalog over the next 18 months. Those people are on a mission from God.
I got into Fela back when I was buying most of my music on cassette. Time for the upgrade.
Meanwhile, I can point you to a FREE MP3 off the new “Best of the Black President” deluxe double-CD.
Click here to hear “Zombie” on my Vox blog. It’s a 12½-minute cut from 1977. To download it, follow this link to Giant Step, the marketing website. (If you’re a Mac user, CTRL+click and “Save Link As...”)
