Boomkat product review for:

fela kuti - Lagos Baby

*LIMITED EDITION DELUXE GATEFOLD EDITION NOW IN STOCK* There must be something in the air at the moment, because the zeitgeist certainly seems to be preoccupied with the musical output of Nigeria, and of course there are no greater stars of Nigerian music than Fela Kuti. This double CD volume accounts for Kuti's career between 1963 and 1969, drawing a line before we get to his Africa 70 days. Consequently, the compilation might be viewed as taking a less politicised approach to Kuti's career and deliberately sidestepping the music that coincided with his activism against the Nigerian military dictatorship during the '70s. the benefit of this is that it gives an insight into the man's purely musical innovations - this is afterall the musician behind what we now term as Afrobeat, and it was during this period in the sixties that his signature musical style developed from its roots in highlife, jazz and soul. This transition is compartmentalised and divided by the two discs: the first focussing on Kuti's early roots while the second unveils the definitive Afrobeat sound he was to ecome best known for. Awesome.
