Fela & Africa 70

Coffin For Head Of State
Knitting Factory, Mid 70s. (reissue)
LP ... On December 13, 2019
One of the most compelling Fela albums of the 70's – and one that's got a very different feel than some of his others. The album features one long track – "Coffin For Head Of State" – and although the track still has the usual Fela staples of horn riffs, chopping vamps, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Egypt 80

Army Arrangement
Knitting Factory, 1985.
LP ... On December 13, 2019
One of the best of Fela's albums from the 80's, and one that features one long track – "Army Arrangement" – done in vocal and instrumental versions, each lasting for a side of the record. The track's an excellent one – with a hard heavy groove, as the cut's the "ori ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70

Yellow Fever
Knitting Factory, 1976/1999.
LP ... On December 13, 2019
Beautiful reissue of this very hard to find Fela album from the mid 70s! The reissue has everything you'd find in the original – right down to the cool painting on the cover of some T&A being covered with "Soyoyo Cream Skin Bleacher"! The cut "Yellow Fever" is a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70

VIP
Knitting Factory, 1979. (reissue)
LP ... On December 13, 2019
"V.I.P." stands for "Vagabonds In Power", and the track was recorded live by Fela before a very enthusiastic audience in Berlin. It's great to hear him working in this live setting, and the track starts with a nice spoken introduction before leaping into a guitar-based groove. LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70

No Agreement
Knitting Factory, 1978. (reissue)
LP ... On December 13, 2019
A killer from the classic years, and one of Fela's best albums! "No Agreement" is a super great groover – with a catchy hook that goes on and on, and some very tasty playing by Tony Allen and the group. The track is long, with heavy solos, and vocals that will knock you out! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Egypt 80

Underground System
Knitting Factory, 1992. (reissue)
LP ... On December 13, 2019
Great record that (we think) was from the early 90's – although it sounds like it could be a lot earlier. But let's face it, all of Fela's stuff is great, old and new, and this LP's no different. It's got two great long drawn-out grooves, with large instrumental bits, tight choppy afro-funk ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70

JJD (Johnny Just Drop)
Knitting Factory, Early 70s/1998. (reissue)
LP ... On December 13, 2019
A great live set recorded in 1977 at Fela's own Kalakuta club. The record's a great way to hear how Fela evolved his groove in a live studio setting – as the one long track ("Johnny Just Drop") evolves over both sides of the record, with the kind of funky vamping that also ...

Alhaj Bai Konte, Dembo Konte, & Ma Lamini Jobare

Gambian Griot Kora Duets
Folkways, 1977. (reissue)
LP ... On January 24, 2020
A beautiful little record – one that features cascading tones from the strings of the kora, mixed with occasional vocal moments too! The album was recorded in Dakar and Brikama in the mid 70s – and is maybe the start of a great run of later sessions that found a way of taking this ... LP, Vinyl record album

Music Of Many Colors
Celluloid/Knitting Factory, 1980. (reissue)
LP ... On November 29, 2019 (delayed)
One of the best soul collaborations ever! Fela and Roy Ayers team up for this whopping album that brings together the best sides of these monster soul talents of the 70s! In keeping with Fela's work, the tracks are long and Afro-tinged, with a complicated groove that grows over the length of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
