Here’s a chance to own six of the best Afrobeat classics.

It’s been almost 20 years since the great Fela Kuti passed away, but through various reissues projects, a recent film and a musical, his legacy lives on. Having already released Kuti’s complete catalogue of nearly 50 albums online and on CD, Knitting Factory are on a mission to bring the Afrobeat originator’s works back to vinyl.

Working with crowdfunding site Pledge Music, Knitting Factory will press six of his pioneering albums onto a different colour of vinyl: Alagbon Close, Beasts Of No Nation, Everything Scatter, Fear Not For Man, Na Poi and Roforofo Fight.

Pledge Music and Knitting Factory have also created a bunch of other limited edition items to accompany the vinyl, including test pressings, T-shirts and screen prints, and each pre-order includes access to some special unreleased content. The records are expected in October, priced £25 each or £180 for the set, and can be pre-ordered now.

Earlier this year Soundway Records unearthed the very first recordings by Fela Kuti, while Brian Eno curated a seven-LP box set. Knitting Factory were also responsible for placing a heap of Fela’s back catalogue on Bandcamp last year. [via The Vinyl Factory]
