    Fela Kuti was the outstanding African musician of the 20th century and Afrobeat is his lasting legacy. This book, lavishly illustrated with studies by two of the leading photographers of African culture and evocative snapshots by the author, adds a unique insight to the growing body of literature on Fela and provides a guide to the music that rocked a continent.

    John Collins stayed and played with Fela during the golden days of the 1970s and this is his account of that dramatic period. No-one else could have written this book and no-one is better equipped to place these astonishing events in perspective.
