About this item

50th anniversary edition of 1971's London Scene, pressed on limited edition white, red, blue splatter vinyl. Complete with a collector's gold OBI strip.

After finishing school at London’s Trinity College School Of Music, Fela returned to Nigeria and his band Koola Lobitios. He began fusing the sounds of jazz and funk with the traditional African music he had been raised on. EMI, his label at the time, saw the true power of his musical creation, which he termed ‘afro-beat’ and brought Fela and his band back to London. The result was ‘London Scene’, Fela’s first release, recorded at Abbey Road. Cream drummer Ginger Baker plays un-credited on the track ‘Egbe Mio’.
