Beasts Of No Nation / odoo
collection of two strong fela albums from the late 80s / early 90s.
beasts of no nation is political in the extreme, with some of his most venom filled lyrics accompanying typically sinuous grooves. odoo (overtake don overtake overtake) is a great example of improvisatory repetition. Funk and soul fans will appreciate Kuti's love of the endless groove, while jazz aficionados should pay attention to the long sax solos.
