fela ransome kuti & the africa 70 - Live With Ginger Baker

Legendary hook-up from Afrobeat titan Fela Ransome-Kuti and Cream drummer Ginger Baker, recorded in 1971 and now faithfully reissued by Label Maison/Wrasse Records. As the story goes, Ginger Baker, burned out byt he excess of touring with his band, left for Ghana in 1970 to spend time with his friend. While there, his ear caught the sound of Nigerian radio and he would travel into what was then a war zone to meet up with Fela Kuti, who he'd previously met in London when Fela was playing trumpet for Remi Kebaka some years prior. Ginger ended up establishing a studio in Lagos and upon return to London invited Fela for a session at Abbey Road studio to an audience of 150. The resulting recording was 'Fela Ransome-Kuti and The Africa '70 with Ginger Baker - Live!', four tracks made in a couple of hours, 'Let's Start', 'Black Man's Cry', Ye Ye De Smell', and 'Egbe Mi O', starring Ginger and Tony Allen duelling on percussion, Fela in fine fettle, and the rest of Africa '70 playing a winner.
