Nigeria / UK, 1971, afrobeat

Fela Ransome-Kuti and The Africa ’70 With Ginger BakerLive!: Being used to two-track under-30-minute Fela albums, I am pleasantly surprised to see this one clock in at 45 minutes and contain four tracks. There’s some Fela talking to the audience a bit, but most of this live album is jamming and soloing, and it’s all good. Groovy from beginning to end, sweeping the listener up into the festivities.
