Fela Anikulapo Kuti And Roy Ayers - Music Of Many Colours (Phonodisk/Celluloid - 1980)

Fela and Roy Ayers together: white rockers were not the only ones to create supergroups. Roy Ayers and Fela collaborated only for one album, Music Of Many Colours but what an album. There are two songs of it but both are near 20 minutes long and by the two geniuses at the top of their inspiration. Africa 70 incandescent afrobeat is smoothed out by Roy Ayers vibes and disco fused soul, making of the first track, 2,000 Black Go To Be Free, a sure dicerning dancefloor filler. Africa - Centre Of The World is more into Fela traditionnal mold: 3 drummers on fire, blasting horns and Roy Ayers riding the funk with his vibraphone solos. I found on You Tube a rare Louie Vega remix of 2,000 Blacks Got To Be Free I didn't know. But sorry I don't have any link to download it for free so I'm afraid that if you really want it, you'll have to buy it.
