Femi Kuti

LP (Item 41543) Tabu, 1995 — Condition: Near Mint-

Rare promo-only vinyl pressing of this early album by Femi Kuti – a tight bunch of tracks that picks up where his father's work left off, taking the classic 70s Afro Funk sound firmly into the 90s. By that, we don't mean that Femi's adding in any extra garbage to the music – because the overall sound is very much in the straight sound that Fela was using – but just that things are tightened up a bit in a modern funk mode. Titles include "Nawa", "Survival", "Frustrations", "Plenty Nonsense", "No Shame", "Live For Today", and "Changes".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Promo in a plain sleeve.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Afro club with a very international vibe – no surprise, given that Momo Joseph was raised in Cameroon, but spent most of the 70s living in Paris – where he quickly assimilated a range of soul and funk styles to the music of his roots!

An early classic from LaBelle – wonderful vocals mixed with both heavy funk and laidback spacey soul touches!
