Seven individual vinyl reissues from the Brian Eno-curated Fela Kuti Box Set (#3) will be released on October 14th, with preorder starting today!
Eno’s album selections span the ten years in which Fela’s afrobeat progressed from its formative stage to a rich maturation of the form. It begins with 1971’s Shakara and ends with 1980’s I.T.T.(International Thief Thief). It also includes London Scene (1972), Afrodisiac, Gentleman (both 1973) and Upside Down (1976). The ultimate selection is 1976’s Zombie, which was a huge hit in Nigeria.
All of the albums are pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
