✨✧ Fela & Ginger BakerFela & Ginger Baker Live (2LP red vinyl pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1971. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really seminal album from Fela Kuti – searing live set that's presented 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 his presence here made for a key moment of global exposure for the new Afro Funk sound that Fela was creating with his Africa 70 group – playing here as part of the ensemble, which oddly doesn't seem to include Baker at all. That hardly matters, though, as the young Tony Allen is on drums, and the set features great trumpet from Tunde Williams and tenor from Igo Chiko – really wailing alongside Fela on the long tracks "Egbe Me O", "Ye Ye De Smell", "Black Man's Cry", and "Let's Start". LP features a 16 minute long bonus track on side 3 – a duet between Ginger Baker on drums and Tony Allen! LP, Vinyl record album
(50th Anniversery Edition red vinyl pressing with bonus live tracks and an etched D side!)

✨✧ Ginger Baker & FelaStratavarious ... LP
Atco, 1972. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Forget what you think about Ginger Baker, this one's really more of a Fela album – as it was recorded in London during the time when Fela and Ginger Baker were hanging out together! The tracks are long, with a tight funky sound, and lots of cool keyboards by Fela (who also sings and plays percussion). One track, recorded earlier, features a cool percussion jam between Ginger Baker and Guy Warren, the enigmatic African percussionist who also recorded with his Soundz group in the UK. Titles include "Ju Ju", "Blood Brothers", "Ariwo", and "Tiwa". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing with PR suffix. Cover has a cutout notch and bent corners.)

EG, 1981. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
A classic album from this great group from Ghana – one that probably got more exposure than usual, thanks to the fact that they were taken under the wing of Brian Eno, who produced the album, in a tradition that would stretch back to Ginger Baker's work with Fela! The group have a great sound here – bold, fast-moving rhythms – with elements in Eno's production that almost recall his work with the Talking Heads – especially his way of bringing out the most robust elements in the basslines and percussion! The whole thing is done with a great balance – nicely respectful, but also with a slight updating of the sonic quality – yet never in a way that's got the more commercial inclinations of the world music boom to come. There's some cool moogy moments at time – almost bursting out of the mix in the way that Eno's electronics would pepper some of his early work with Roxy Music – and titles include "Gbenta", "Something Lefeh-O", "Blinking Eyes", and "Moonlight Africa". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, promo sticker, and an index label in back.)
