The Breakdown: a visit from Peril & Prequel

Listen to the whole thing here

I started off with a little Fela thing due to the fact that it was his birthday and I'd gotten some crazy Fela records recently.  Have been trying to decide on a cover to play at Scatter Scatter with The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra too.  Right now I'm leaning towards this:

But for now you fine people get to dig on:

Fela Kuti - Who're You? (Makossa LP 'Fela's London Scene' 1971) mediafire

This bad boy was recorded in '71 and features Ginger Baker on another track.  Was released about the same time as the live record and it shares a couple of songs.  Yeni Kuti told me her father that once he had recorded a song he would never play it live again but I think that rule like anything with Fela was pretty flexible.  I do like that idea though, that the record was the end process of the life of a song.  The stories he was telling, the moods he was creating they were of their time and no other.  It was like the daily newspaper, once it was recorded it was already old news.
