9/10 Evan Customer review, 27th June 2013
Get the party started with this one.
'Open & Close' is probably my favourite Kuti track. The nearly 15 minute long track is a relentless mix of jazz and African tribal drumming and rhythm which swings along with punchy trumpets above a chorus of piano, guitar, saxophone and jangling percussion. You get swept away with it and at the 8 minute mark, Fela comes in with his very rich vocals which are just bursting with joy and rhythm.
In fact the whole roaring song is doing just that, it's quivering with joy, bursting with excitement and demanding that you start tapping your foot at the least.
A must buy, even if just for the rather cool CD cover.
