Fela Kuti was the greatest African musician of all time, whose influence has spread not just throughout African Music, but has also influenced many of the greatest Western musicians, from the Beatles and Stevie Wonder to James Brown. This is the first in a major series of Anthologies commemorating Fela’s musical legacy.

Anthology Volume 1 is a beautifully packaged 3 disc set. CD1 concentrates on the best of Fela's early years, including the Koola Lobitas period and the LA Sessions. CD2 features a selection of the best tracks from the classic era featuring Fela's 'Africa 70' band. The third disc is the DVD Teacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense - a documentary from 1984. This film charts the life of Fela and includes previously unseen footage from his famous headlining Glastonbury show in 1984. This release features insightful sleeve notes by Fela's first daughter Yeni.
