CD


5.00 32

A key album in the 90s revival of Afro Funk – a seminal set from Fela's first famous son! The album's got a really nice edge throughout – and offers a mixture of older Afro Funk modes with some slight contemporary elements – bits of electronics and occasional programmed rhythms, neither of which are used heavily at all – and which are always offset by some of the best warmer elements you'd expect from a Kuti family member. There's some very strong horn parts on the record, and great chorus vocals too – and titles include the single "Beng Beng Beng" – plus "Scatta Head", "Look Around", "Sorry Sorry", "Victim Of Life", and "Blackman Know Yourself". (Barcode has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Celluloid/Afrodesia, 1976. Used
Truly fantastic stuff – and one of the hardest Fela records to find! Lovingly reissued here with great sound, a great package, and some monster Afro funk throughout. The record features a guest appearance by Sandra Akanke Isidore on vocals, but most of the singing's still done by Fela, and ... CD

Yoro Sidibe
Yaala Yaala, 2008. Used
Hypnotic vocals from Yoro Sidibe – a "hunter's singer" from the Wasulu region of Mali – and one who works with a very unique sort of groove! All tracks here feature Sidibe also playing the donso ngoni, a rough harp-like instrument that resonates strongly, and which is ... CD

Boy's Doin' It
Casablanca/Verve, 1975. Used
A mid 70s effort from Hugh Maskela, recorded in Nigeria, an excellent melding of his jazz inflected pop sound with some deeper soulful grooves. The vibe here is showing both some funk and disco influences, but with trademark South African style melodies floating over top and a dedication to Fela, ... CD
