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).

The title track, "Yellow Fever", is a scathing criticism of post-colonial Nigerians who cannot shake their "colonial mentality." Fela rails on women who bleach their skin as an act of beauty, contemptuously adding that, despite what they think, it only makes them less attractive. The second track of the album is the notorious "Na Poi" (loosely translating to "things collide") which was banned by the Nigerian Broadcasting Company for its explicit, socially shocking sexual references. As Fela jams out, the song becomes a veritable "how-to" guide to sex, including allusions to motion and lubrication, among other taboo details.
