Fela Kuti – Original Sufferhead

Part of Fela Kuti‘s 50th anniversary special reissues, here’s Vinyl Box #5 (to be released December 10th), limited to 4000 copies worldwide.

Box Set #5 was co-curated by Femi Kuti & Chris Martin (of Coldplay).

While preparing the masters for Box Set #5, audio engineer extraordinaire Colin Young discovered four minutes of “lost” material on the B-side of an original 1981 pressing, which includes a superb keyboard solo by Fela that had been omitted from subsequent reissues. The restored version used here starts and finishes with Fela’s keyboard work, a typically venturesome blend of futurism and visceralism.
