2007 release. Vampisoul presents a complete '70s anthology of the drummer and music director of African superstar Fela Kuti's band Africa 70, from 1968 until 1979, the creators of Afrobeat. This monster pack includes Tony's first four solo albums: Jealousy (1975), Progress (1976), No Accomodation for Lagos (1978), and No Discrimination (1979). The first three produced by Fela Kuti himself and with Africa 70; the last one with Tony´s band The Afro Messengers. Complete extensive liner notes inside. Mild-mannered, but iron-willed, Tony Allen is the co-creator of Afrobeat, and one of the most distinctive and in-demand drummers on the planet. No one swings like this Nigerian rhythm man -- with that amazing, loose-limbed, poly-rhythmic technique that has powered some of the funkiest and most challenging dance music ever created. Best known for his involvement with the late, great Fela Kuti, Tony Allen is very much more than Fela's -- or anyone else's -- drummer. Bandleader, composer and husky rapping vocalist, Tony Allen has recorded a string of groundbreaking solo albums since parting company with Fela in 1978 -- sides that draw together African rhythm, funk, jazz, soul and hip hop. His inimitably propulsive skinwork has enhanced the work of an amazing range of artists, from Afro-giants Manu Dibango, Ray Lema and Sunny Ade to British-Indian songstress Susheela Raman and Californian rock-rappers Spearhead. Complete extensive liner notes included.
