This double album collects the original Original Suffer Head album and I.

T.T. from 1980 & 1982. Original Suffer Head, from 1982, stands as the first release from Fela Kuti's new Egypt 80 band, with tight & riff heavy compositions. The album is a powerful criticism of the lack of basic necessities for African citizens, despite growing oil wealth. The second included album is I.T.T., a direct attack on exploitative politicians who were in collusion with foreign business. Musically, one can note the first beginnings of the deeper sound of the '80s.
