There is enormous interest around Femi in 2007, in that it is 10 Years since his fathers death and it is 200 years since the abolition of slavery, an issue that Femi is very outspoken on.
The Definitive Collection: Femi Kuti draws on all 3 of Femi's albums including tracks from the rare first self-titled album, with stunning tracks "Wonder Wonder" and "Survival". Also included is his duet with Rachid Taha singing the haunting "Ala Jalkoum" and a remake of one of Fela's favorites, "Water No Get Enemy" which was on the Red Hot and Riot tribute album. This is coupled with a limited edition bonus CD of 10 of the finest mixes of all things Femi Kuti.
"Femi is one of the most dynamic and invigorating figures around." The Times
"One of the true giants of African music." Q
