Released: 14th Oct 2013


With production help from Wally Badarou, Fela Anikulapo Kuti offers up an interesting mix of songs (well, two to be exact) in both vocal & instrumental versions.

Most compelling is the track 'Look & Laugh', which details the attack by Nigerian soldiers on his Kalakuta compound. With simple lyrics, Fela runs down the horror of that attack in a detached, almost journalistic manner: Badarou's production help gives Fela his most full-bodied sound; the horn section is much hotter & brassier than ever before. this is very good mid-'80s Fela. this newly remastered reissue includes a track by track commentary by afrobeat aficionado chris may.
