Knitting Factory Records is proud to reissue Fela Kuti's Underground System on vinyl, previously only available as part of the Box Set series currated by renowned R&B singer Erykah Badu.
The last album of newly recorded material to be released during Fela's lifetime, 1992's Underground System is an outstanding swansong. While Fela's recorded output slowed up as the 1980s progressed — largely as a result of ongoing arrests, beatings and jailings — his final years of recording produced some of his strongest work, notably Teacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense (1986), Beasts Of No Nation (1989), Overtake Don Overtake Overtake (1990) and Underground System.
All albums have been fully remastered and are housed in sleeves featuring recreations of the LPs' original artworks.
