[Kronomyth 1.0] I Fela good.
Baker’s interesting African exile led him into Fela’s camp for a few albums, with this being perhaps the most famous.
[Kronomyth 3.0] What will be the sacred word?
Fela’s new single takes aim at the white colonialism creeping into African culture without missing an Afrobeat.
Songs about sex and death, this isn’t his most enduring work, but Fela and the band show plenty of endurance all the same.
Two electric guitarists double the pleasure of Fela’s evolving Afrobeat sound on this engaging record.
Fela and a slightly retooled Africa 70 continue to refine their Afrobeat sound, this time with a pro-machismo, anti-braggadocio agenda.
A few more tweaks to the lineup result in Fela’s best album to date and an Afrobeat classic.
Basically half a Fela album and half an album of rock + drum workshop.
Recorded in Abbey Road Studios in London in 1971, this features re-recordings of some of Fela’s recent homeland hits.
