Start with The Best Of The Black President 1 first, it is truly a remarkable overview of a musical genius and a 50+ album career. Not all the songs here are in the same vein as TBOTBP-1 except maybe "Yellow Fever", but still, it is essential listening. The downside is that the price for the CD and Mp3 is a little steep. There is nothing by Fela Kuti that is not worth hearing.

I downloaded the 12 songs from this recording. I like the recording. It's great. But when I put these mp3 files on a thumb drive and try to play them in a 2010 Prius, it says there are no mp3 files on the thumb drive. The Prius does not recognize these files as valid mp3 files. I have purchased many mp3 collections from Amazon, and this is the first one to have this problem. In fact, I bought another collection of mp3 files (Red Hot and Riot, Fela Kuti) just a few days ago and they work fine in the Prius. I checked the specs on the Prius audio player, and they seem to match exactly the specs on these files from Amazon: MPEG-1, Layer 3, VBR, 44.1 kHz sampling rate, ID3 Tag v2.3, data rate less than 320 kbps. If you want to play these in a Prius, I would not recommend them until the problem is resolved.

One week later: Gjeschik from PriusChat solved the problem. If you edit the tags for these mp3 songs and delete the album art, the songs will play on the 2010 Prius. I used the free mp3 tag editor called Mp3tag.
