2015 Reissue

A condemnation of African skin-bleaching, "Yellow Fever" likens the practice to real diseases sweeping through the continent, employing a dark, percolating groove as a backdrop. "Na Poi," originally recorded in 1972 and banned by the Nigerian Broadcasting Company, is featured here in a re-recorded version known as "Na Poi 75." An open expression of the sexual practices within his then-flourishing Kalakuta Republic compound, it is an intensely funky major-key jam driven by its clamorous horns and staccato bassline. Na Poi features the original 25-minute "Na Poi," a considerably starker arrangement with extended drum breaks, solos, and chanting. "You No Go Die...Unless" is a kind of comfort jam to the thousands of rural villagers who moved to Lagos in search of wealth generated by the mid-'60s oil boom, punctuated by a quirky, clipped beat and Yoruba lyrics. Not one of Kuti's best releases, but, as with all his material, it's worth hearing.
