Sleeve M (sealed)

Format : LP
Cat N° : KFR2008-1

In 1971, Fela Kuti had local hits with “Chop And Quench” and “Don’t Gag Me.” He re-recorded them in London’s Abbey Road Studio, along with “Eko Ile” and “Alu Jon Jonki Jon” from the same sessions, for the album Afrodisiac. It was recorded with his earlier band lineup and showcases the grooves and rhythms of the era. Fela’s vocals and electric piano are prominent, but Afrika ’70 shines when they step forward. “Don’t Gag Me” and “Chop And Quench” are highlights, and the album reflects Fela’s evolving style. Fela’s albums often explore similar themes, forming parts of a larger afrobeat narrative, and Afrodisiac exemplifies his innovation during the early ’70s.
