Fela Kuti & Africa 70 - Fear Not For Man-LP-South

Fela Kuti & Africa 70 - Fear Not For Man

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.
