Fela Kuti - Open And Close, 50th Ann. Reissue Vinyl LP

Factory Sealed (New)

Fela Kuti is a Nigerian Afrobeat composer, bandleader, and multi-instrumentalist widely regarded as the pioneer of Afrobeat.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Fela Kuti's classic Open & Close, Knitting Factory Records and Cooking Vinyl Australia are pleased to announce the first vinyl pressing since the 1980s. This edition features a return to the original gatefold jacket and contains side B tracks 'Swegbe & Pako', and 'Gbagada Gbagada Gbogodo Gbogodo'.

"Perhaps the distinguishing factors of records like Open & Close and some of Fela's other '70s releases are that as much as he liked to ride a groove, he also liked to disrupt it, twist it and turn it, reshape it, only to bring it back to its original shape. There was less of that later in his career" – AllMusic
