Fela Kuti Box Set Compiled by Ginger Baker from Turntable Lab Sweepstakes

Register to win the Fela Kuti Box Set Compiled by Ginger Baker from Turntable Lab (MSRP $99) we are giving away.

According to Turntable Lab:

The second curated box set of long-awaited reissues from Fela Kuti is finally here! This time around, Knitting Factory Records has enlisted frequent Fela collaborator Ginger Baker to take the honors in selecting 6 classic LPs from the godfather of afrobeat's illustrious catalog. Baker's selections for this set include his own collaboration record, Live with Ginger Baker from '71, Roforofo Fight from '72, Confusion and Alagbon Close from '74, He Miss Road from '75, and Na Poi from '76.

Each of the albums have been painstakingly reproduced with full color album art and vintage labels making these particular reissues an excellent choice for collectors. If you're unfamiliar with Fela Kuti's music, this release is the excellent place to start - for longtime fans, this is an opportunity to own some of the harder to find records in a deluxe, expertly packaged set.

The box also includes a 12 page full-color booklet with an essay by Ginger Baker, liner notes from veteran British music journalist Chris May, and a poster designed by H. Cuadrado. Recommended.

Interesting

I found afro-beat while working in SA late 70's. This looks like a nice set to get started with.

I saw the movie

Does seeing the doctumentary film "Beware of Mr. Baker" give me a heads up in this contest? I hope so because I saw it at Film Forum in NYC a couple of weeks ago. Highly recommended!

Fela!

One of the first African artists I discovered - which then set me on a path to find so many more fabulous musicians from all over that continent!
