Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
The title certainly gets it right – as there's a strongly unified sense of spirit here from Family Atlantica – even more so than on their debut album! As before, there's a range of global elements moving through the mix – currents of South American and African styles, given a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

FelaEverything Scatter (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.99
A great little record – with two brilliant side-long tracks! "Everything Scatter" is a stone 70s classic from Fela – and a cut that's maybe the blueprint for so much Afro Funk to follow – beautifully layered, with so many different elements coming into play at once, yet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

FelaFela Live In Detroit 1986 (3CD set) ... CD
Knitting Factory, 1986. Used 3 CDs ... $9.99
Amazing sounds from Fela – a previously-unreleased live show from the mid 80s – almost three times as long as a studio album, and appearing here for the first time ever! Given that there's very few live recordings of Fela at all, the album's quite a treasure – and is almost even ... read more CD

A richly expanded version of this key Fela album from the 80s – one that adds in a full extra bonus album's worth of material! The CD contains the full 30 minute version of "Army Arrangement", a great mid 80s tune that was one of Fela's strongest political tracks – an ... read more CD

Fela & Egypt 80Live In Amsterdam (full version) ... CD

An excellent live set from Fela – one that shows that he was still very capable of going over the top during the 80s!

Fela & Ginger BakerFela & Ginger Baker Live! (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
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! Baker had already picked up a lot of Fela's influence in his music – and rather than the record being one ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Alagbon Close ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.99
One of the lesser-known 70s session from Fela – but a great one too, and a record that captures the Africa 70 group at all their early raw best! Tracks are both very long – stretching for a side of the record apiece – and the title track "Alagbon Close" features some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Knitting Factory, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.99
Really mindblowing work from Fela – a seminal 70s set that may well open up even more than any other album from the time – as the leader and Africa 70 stretch out on a single track that takes up the entire record! "Confusion" is almost proggish at the start – with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Expensive Sh*t (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
A real classic from the great Fela Kuti – a seminal mid 70s record that not only shows his impeccable sense of rhythm, but also his sense of rage as well! The title track – "Expensive Sh_t" – is Fela's answer to the time that he got busted for dope, and was forced to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Fear Not For Men (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.99
An incredible record from Fela – a set that's maybe even darker and more moody than some of his other records from the time – but still pretty darn funky overall! Side one features the tremendous title cut "Fear Not For Man" – a strong message, especially given Fela's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Monkey Banana/Excuse O ... CD
Knitting Factory, 1976. Used Gatefold ... $8.99
2 albums that show Fela totally at the top of his game! Both albums hail from 1976, a key year for Fela – both musically and politically, as you'll hear on the CD's 4 extended tracks. "Monkey Banana" is a scathing attack on the status quo, and on the futility of working for ... read more CD

Knitting Factory, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.99
One of the sexiest tunes that Fela ever cut – as you might guess from the image on the cover! The track begins with a cool spoken bit, about what man and woman get up to behind close doors – then moves into this pulsating keyboard part which is almost eerily spare, until the rest of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Shuffering & Shmiling is one of the tougher Fela albums to find, and it's reissued here with the original cover art, and with the super-extended title cut laid out non-stop end to end. The cut's a very nice groover, and a scathing attack on religion to boot! "No Agreement" is a very ... read more CD

Sweet Lagos disco from First Planet – two clubby cuts from the 70s, served up in a mighty special package! "Top Of The World" has this snapping sort of vibe that's like a great post-disco cut from the US – a bit of funk and club mixed together, with very cool processing on ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record
