Boomkat Product Review:
Long-awaited official release of a concert recording that's existed as a legendary bootleg for yonks. It finds the afrobeat godhead in his Egypt 80 phase, with the insistent funk of Africa 70 giving way to a more chill, exploratory jazz. Still, this is Fela - even when he's mellow he's on fire. The crisply captured sound of the baying, buoyant crowd - every heckle, every whoop of delight - really adds to the experience of these four long jams, and Fela's spoken introductions are priceless. But it's the music, of course, that speaks most eloquently: 'Teacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense' is particularly wonderful, with solos to die for. If there's one tiny quibble it's that instrumental opener 'Serene, Do Right, Be Good' - which hardcore fans will remember from the bootleg - hasn't made the cut, presumably due to space constraints. But whatever: you probably won't have a better chance to own this timeless, effervescent music so beautifully mastered and presented, so you know what to do!
