Excellent 2-CD selection of Feal Kuti’s afrobeat classics, many long tracks up to 17 minutes. Liner notes give extensive background on his political activities, many relate to the music. Very energetic, good beats even when telling about tragic events in Fela Kuti’s life or Africa. Vocals are in pidgin, generally understandable to English speakers.
