Okayafrica Vinyl: Six Early Fela Kuti LPs Are Getting Vinyl Reissues
Fela Kuti's catalogue is not just expansive, it demands to be heard from between the dust & grooves. And so, Knitting Factory has teamed up with PledgeMusic to bring the Afrobeat and funk legend's early portfolio to wax in a big (and colorful) way. Six of the pioneer's albums (Alagbon Close, Beasts Of No Nation, Everything Scatter, Fear Not For Man, Na Poi and Roforofo Fight) will be pressed to colored acetates, each with their own shade, all brimming with musical excellence and in a physical form that is refreshing to both the eyes and ears. So no more scrounging the internets for hi-fi digital copies. It's time to amp up the bookshelf with some of Fela's most cherished cuts so that you can put the needle to the groove and flaunt the goods in all of their lush and funky glory. What's more, KF and Pledge are offering some limited edition tees and posters to compliment all of the frequencies with some fresh new digs designed by the renowned visual artist Lemi Ghariokwu, who was at the helm of every iconic piece of cover art for Fela's massive catalogue. Hit the link below and get your slice of Fela Kuti's early works on wax today.
