The first of the legendary Tony Allen albums – and it's got a killer groove that's very similar to some of the best Fela work of the early 70s!

Satbel (South Africa), 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
Original cast production of this semi-popular musical from the early 70s – a collection of South African tunes performed by a large uncredited cast.

We don't know anything about this – and we don't even know if we got the name right, since it's in Russian – but the album has some surprisingly groovy little numbers, with bouncy electric bass underneath swinging harmony vocals – almost like some lost Odeon groover from Brazil, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing sounds from Fela – a previously-unreleased live show from the mid 80s! Given that there's very few live recordings of Fela at all, the album's quite a treasure – and is almost even more important, as it's one of the few from a time when Fela was hardly recording at all – ... read more CD

Shanachie, Early 80s. Used ... $8.99
Excellent work from Fela – recorded in the early 80s, but every bit as great as his classic 70s work! In fact, the cuts may be even more interesting – because the groove's a bit more complicated, and the overall sound is far moodier, with a greater range of emotion than the early days. ... read more CD

A stunning set of work from the legendary Fela Kuti – seven full albums, served up in an ultra-limited box set – all hand-chosen by the equally legendary Brian Eno!

A really seminal album from Fela Kuti – searing live set that pairs him with drummer Ginger Baker – formerly of Cream, and a huge supporter of Fela's music on the UK scene!
