• In response to popular demand Knitting Factory Records reissue six of Nigerian icon and Afrobeat originator Fela Kuti’s most important albums. This will be the first time they are released individually since their original vinyl release in Nigeria in the 70s and 80s.

• The LPs feature Lemi Ghariokwu’s iconic artwork and include digital download card and liner notes by Afrobeat historian Chris May.

• ‘Fear Not For Man’ (1977): Among the first albums Fela released following the sacking of his Kalakuta Republic compound by 1,000 soldiers on 18 February 1977. ‘Fear Not For Man’ sounds like a work in progress interrupted by the attack.

• ‘Palm Wine Sound’ is an attractive, highlife-tinged instrumental that sounds like an earlier recording included to fill out the playing time and enable a quick release during a profoundly difficult period.

• Also includes a guest appearance of American jazz trumpeter Lester Bowie who visited Nigeria in late 1976 / early 1977.
