One of the best qualities of Fela's work that I have always enjoyed is the electric, live feel to his albums but this album doesn't have that. The music is top shelf but for a musician that has so many excellent recordings this one just misses the mark a bit. This album really feels like its one of Femi Kuti's instead of Fela's, which is not to say its bad but a slightly different styling. If you are just starting out in Afrobeat this is not the album, try 'Fela Kuti & the Africa '70 with Ginger Baker', but if you are already a fan of Fela you will enjoy it.
