Vinyl Reissue!

Knitting Factory Records/Cooking Vinyl Australia are proud to reissue the individual titles from the Fela Kuti Box Set #4 Curated by Erykah Badu. This includes Yellow Fever (1976), No Agreement (1977), J.J.D. Johnny Just Drop (1977), V.I.P. (1979), Coffin For Head of State (1980), Army Arrangement (1984), Underground System (1992).

"No Agreement" showcases some of Fela and the Africa 70's highest caliber work within the signature Afrobeat genre. Smooth guitar parts and a pronounced brass section (which included the addition of Art Ensemble of Chicago trumpeter Lester Bowie), improv solos on the sax, and backed by excellent organ and trumpet and Fela's keen lyrical insight, "No Agreement" hits all the right parts.

Lyrically the track "No Agreement" can be likened to Peter Tosh's "Never Gonna Give Up" — Fela will never reach an agreement or compromise with the oppressive forces that fight against progressive social change and the psychological liberation of post-colonial Africans. Fela asks himself, essentially, "how can I remain silent when my brother is hungry and homeless?" His answer: I cannot. The album concludes with Dog Eat Dog, an instrumental piece whose name refers to the metaphorical rat race.
