Fela Kuti's singular success in the west has hidden from view the mind-boggling range of modern Nigerian music. Though formally these two compilations put things in perspective - ranging across styles from the mid-sixties to the early eighties - musically they are just staggering. There is juju apala, afrofunk and highlife. Also there is some breathtaking classic fuji - raw muslim street music - for twenty five years now the real soundtrack of Lagos youth. Both releases come with detailed notes by Michael Veal, Fela's biographer; and great artwork from Lagos.
