I'm probably the last person on the planet to
discover these, but I only just ran across these recordings of Fela
Kuti from Nigeria in 1965. Some of these early tracks have been
released elsewhere, and often it's a little like hearing the early
Wailers – the pieces just haven't fallen into place yet.
However, these recordings, made for a show called Voice Of
America, I understand, are surely must-listen material....
