The Complete 1959 Melodisc Session
Legendary Afrobeat pioneer Fela Ransome Kuti's first recordings of highlife and calypso, recorded in London in 1959, on a limited edition 10". Two of the tracks are released here for the first time ever!! The tape of the very first Fela Ransome Kuti recording session has languished in a series of dusty cupboards and damp basements for 60 years. It's a miracle that it has survived in such fine condition.
