    Wicked early reissue album from cult african hero Fela Ransome-Kuti with his first band Koola lobitos from 1965!

    In early 1965, just as the West African High-life scene was becoming rather a drag and everybody was bored with it all, the revoluntionary sound of Fela Ransome-Kuti & His Koola Lobitos burst upon us! Fela had recently trained at the Trinity College of Music in London before making this album, and was heavily influenced by jazz greats such as Miles Davis and Thad Jones, as a result of this the album has a very jazz infused sound. The horn section features heavilly in the album with Fela (the great musical talent he was) playing trumpet.

    Funky exotic rhythmic patterns, deep afro jazz grooves this album is a brilliant eye opener and rare opportunity to experience the lesser known early Fela recordings compared to his 70's afrobeat output!

    Deluxe digipack, with booklet including Fela’s biography and track-by-track commentary from Afrobeat historian Chris May.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
