It's pretty common knowledge that Fela Kuti created afro-beat.  His influence on not only that genre, but untold others is undeniable.  This collection of Fela covers (approved by his estate) and Fela-inspired songs has been lovingly compiled by Egon and released by Now Again, who really know how to do it up when it comes to compilations.  To wit: This box set contains four 10" records, as well as a large-format booklet that's filled with stories, liner notes and never-before-seen photos of Fela Kuti.  This is an excellent celebration of not only Fela and his music, but the music he inspired in others.  Recommended.
