Sound quality is very good. Sounds a little bit better than the Kalakutta (from the 90s) and Knitting Factory Reissues. Recommended!

This one kicked me into afrobeat. One of my greatest loves right now and forever . Fela Kuti is a master, one of the 50 people who have advanced music in the last 50 years.
