October has been pretty rad as far as Fela Kuti related celebrations are concerned. October 9 saw the release of Vinyl Box Set 2 (which we are giving away!), curated by Ginger Baker, friend and collaborator of Fela. Also, October 15 was Fela’s birthday, which spurred October long Felabrations all around the world.
This particular box set includes long awaited vinyl reissues from Fela’s catalog, including album artwork recreated from “original album artwork along with vintage vinyl label artwork.” The box set also comes with a 12-page color booklet filled with album descriptions by renowned British music journalist Chris May as well as an essay by Ginger Baker. As an additional bonus, box set owners will be treated to a poster by H. Cuadrado.
The box includes the following albums:
- Live with Ginger Baker (1971)
- Roforofo Fight (1972)
- Confusion (1974)
- Alagbon Close (1974)
- He Miss Road (1975)
