Fela Kuti - No Agreement
Knitting Factory Records reissues Fela Kuti's No Agreement on vinyl LP, previously only available as part of the Box Set series. No Agreement is sometimes overlooked among Fela's 1977 releases, eclipsed by albums such as J.J.D. (Johnny Just Drop) and Sorrow Tears and Blood, yet it is among his best records of the period. It features an outstanding Afrika 70 instrumental, "Dog Eat Dog" with a solo by the American trumpeter, Lester Bowie, of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, who was then staying with Fela in Lagos. The audio has been restored and remastered from Fela's original Nigerian recordings. The artwork has been meticulously recreated from original album artwork.
