Regular readers know I'm a big-time fan of afrobeat icon and legend, Fela Ransome Kuti. Check out this new project worth your attention if you feel the same way:
"Now Again Records have just released the Black Man’s Cry: The Inspiration of Fela Kuti collection. Available as both a hardbound book with CD and as a 4 x 10″ LP box set, Black Man’s Cry is as big on presentation as it is straight jams."

Here's one track from
Sylvania East Side Symphony - "Egbi Mi O/Black Man’s Cry (Medley)" [yousendit mp3 download link]
