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.
