The Best Of The Black President signifies the rebirth of Knitting Factory Records. Over the next 18 months, all 45 Fela Kuti titles will be remastered and re-released in unique digi-packs with the original artwork. The reissue series will also mark the first time all of Fela’s titles will be released on vinyl in North America, along with the first official release of the entire catalog of Fela’s 1960s highlife band Koola Lobitos. Included in this digital DJ promo are three of Fela’s classic cuts: “Water No Get Enemy,” “Zombie” and “Roforofo Fight” – all from the inaugural release of the re-issue series, The Best Of The Black President.

    Stunning release showcasing Fela’s music. Roforofo Fight is pure quality, a massive musical opus that has to bee played in its entirety. Would love wav files on this. Thank you so much! Dr Bob Jones

    The man’s music is as fresh and vibrant as ever. Three of his more well known tunes and for good reason. Could the time be right for more widespread respect from US fans? Really hoping these new re-issues and the Broadway love do the trick.
