This freakin' list is bad for my wallet! Not only did I buy one of the bios (Bitch of a Life), but
also a couple of CD's. I had heard of Fela and afrobeat music before but never owned any of it, at
least I thought. Then I realized that I've owned and enjoyed a couple of Fela tunes for years, on
mix tapes that list songs but not artists (typical kind of thing you ended up with if you were into
music and in college in the mid-80's). Thanks to Rod Smear for the original question and all the
interesting responses. Never too old to learn some new music.

there are a couple of biographies on Fela Kuti. I like the one by
Michael Veal. Should have some discography in it, but I am not sure.
