Editorial Reviews

How often does a superstar band leader hand his band over to his drummer, while he steps back to become a sideman? That's what Fela Kuti, undoubtedly the coolest, hippest, best known African musician on the planet both inside and outside of Africa, did in 1975. Find here the complete '70s anthology of the drummer and music director of superstar Fela Kuti's band Africa 70, from 1968 until 1979, the creators of a new style called "Afrobeat" one of the (if not THE) hippest rhythmic music styles of the '70s. An incredible drummer of whom Fela Kuti said "he sounds like FOUR drummers," and indisoluble half of Fela's work and success in the '60s and '70s. This monster pack includes Tony's first four solo albums: Jealousy ('75), Progress ('76), No Accomodation for Lagos ('78), and No Discrimination ('79). The first three produced by Fela Kuti himself and with Africa 70, the last one with Tony's own band The Afro Messengers. Complete extensive liner notes inside.

Format: Audio CD
This is a perfect introduction to Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen. The packaging is excellent, with good liner notes and includes his first four albums. Essential for anyone who is into jazz, funk, soul, the Good the Bad and The Queen, or musical culture in general.
