Review: Afrobeat legend, cult bandleader and multi-instrumentalist Fela Kuti recorded his Open & Close album in Lagos in 1971. Originally released on the Nigerian His Master's Voice imprint, it now gets a full reissue on Partisan. It consists of only three track, and once again finds Feld riding his own grooves off into the sunset. There are twists and turns along the way and of course some fantastic horn work to compliment the sounds, but never do you grow detach from that underlying pulse. This might not be as politically or socially charged as other LPs from Fela, but musically it is right on point.

Review: There are numerous reasons why you shop cop a copy of this 50th anniversary reissue of Fela Kuti and Africa '70s 1971 album Open & Close, not least the luxurious gatefold packaging (modelled on the gatefold sleeve that accompanied the original Nigerian album release) and a marbled red and orange vinyl pressing. The album itself remains one of the late, great saxophonist and bandleader's greatest albums: a fiery and funky Afrobeat set whose groove-based tracks brilliantly twist and turn and come laden with a variety of expressive solos from the man himself and various members of his vast backing band (including, we should point out, some incredible Tony Allen drum-work). The 15-minute title track in particular is mind-blowing.
