AFRODISIAC 50TH ANNIVERSARY RE-ISSUE
Afrodisiac is the fifth in the series of celebratory Fela 50th Anniversary reissues. The songs on Afrodisiac were tracks that Fela and the Nigeria 70 (Later Africa 70) re-recorded at Abbey Road Studios in 1972 after they had become hits in Nigeria. The best known track on the album, 'Jeun Ko Ku’, is listed by its Pidgin title ‘Chop and Quench’ on this album. It’s a satire about gluttony and Fela's first major hit across West Africa. ‘Chop and Quench’ means ""eat and die"" in Standard English.
Like its predecessors in the series, this double LP edition is on color vinyl; LP 1 is green marble and LP 2 is on red marble. The album will be wrapped in a gold foil OBI strip with a brief essay on the album and Fela’s global impact on music. To celebrate the re-issue, "Alu Jon Jonki Jon" is now available to enjoy digitally for the first time ever.
