Another batch of influential albums from the late Fela Kuti, Afrobeat pioneer and human rights and political activist, is being reissued by Knitting Factory Records to commemorate the contributions Kuti made to music and society as a whole. These colored vinyl reissues include Fear Not For Man (1977), Beasts Of No Nation (1989), Everything Scatter (1975), Roforofo Fight (1972), Alagbon Close (1974) and Na Poi (1976). Each includes Lemi Ghariokwu's iconic original album artwork.
Na Poi, originally released in 1972, was re-released in 1976. Another version was included on 1976's Yellow Fever. The title track was hugely controversial and was banned by the Nigerian Broadcasting Company on original release. In Yoruba, the expression literally means "things will collide," and in the lyric Fela describes what men and women get up to in bed together in graphic detail.
