Here’s some posters Kayrock screened for us. Its the cover of Fela Kuti’s Zombie (one of my favorite records from him). I photo retouched the album from a scan I made of an old record that was pretty beat up. What makes this one extra special is this one is signed by Lemi Ghariokwu who made the original art back in the 70’s.
FELA KUTI “LIVE IN DETROIT 1986”
This just came out last Tuesday and is a really phenomenal album! I’ve been working on Fela art for over 3 years now, reviving all of the album art for re-release. This however is the first “new” record I was able to work on. We manage to get a scan of the actual poster and ticket stub for this show and used it in the packaging. The inside of the digi-pack is an adjusted version of the actual TDK tap used to record this show (I just so happened to have one of these tapes with the jacket). Although this is a pretty simple package and layout it’s one of my favorites I’ve done to date.
You can pick up a copy of this amazing album here!
