Recorded live at the Fox Theater in Detroit in November 1986, the concert marked a triumphant return to the USA for Nigeria's Afrobeat master, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. He had tried to leave his home country to tour the States two years earlier before being arrested and imprisoned on dubious charges of "currency trafficking". An Amnesty International campaign helped secure his release in April 1986 and, just two months later, he appeared on stage as part of Amnesty's 'Conspiracy Of Hope' American tour. The evening's audio recorder, Bob Teagan, claimed the '86 Fox Theater show to be Fela's best performance, "It was like seeing Bob Marley, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, and James Brown all rolled into one. Fela captured the revolution of Marley, the love of Marvin Gaye, he sung with a rare and exquisite charcoal voice like Sinatra but he would scream himself out and go hoarse by the end of the three hour marathon show. All the while he danced like Michael Jackson or a ballerina, and captivated the crowd with the showmanship of James Brown."
