"Sorrow Tears & Blood": http://youtu.be/tj1wpNuQRaM
 
 
In 2013 Knitting Factory Records reissued the complete works of Nigerian icon and Afrobeat originator Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Almost 50 original albums were released over 26 individual CDs, all re-packaged, with in-depth track commentaries written by Afrobeat historian Chris May, as well as the compilations ‘The Best Of The Black President’ (part 1 + 2) and the deluxe CD box set ‘The Complete Works’.
 
Now, in response to popular demand, six of Fela’s most important albums will be reissued on vinyl. This will be the first time they are released as individual vinyl albums since their original vinyl release in Nigeria in the 70s and 80s - something which will not only delight audiophile Fela fans, but also the admirers of Lemi Ghariokwu’s iconic artwork, now again at 12 x 12 inches as it was intended.
