Boomkat Product Review:
Two seminal classics of the Afrobeat canon from Fela Kuti and Africa 70, compiling 1975s 'Monkey Banana' and 'Excuse O' on one disc. This is considered prime period Fela, somwhere at the height of his powers, speaking out against government corruption and the Nigerian elite. The title track is a killer slow Afrobeat groove utilising a distinctive electric organ set to a languid but heavily funky groove that's inspired so many acts since. 'Sense Wiseness' from the same release is also incredibly prime, again featuring the organ with sensual slow percussion and commanding a terrific horn section. Next 'Excuse O' makes great use of studio techniques on another blueprint groove followed by the almost psychedelic 'Mr Grammart (Calogylisationalism Is The Boss)'. Most essential!
