Knitting Factory Records is proud to reissue Fela Kuti's Yellow Fever on vinyl, previously only available as part of the Box Set series currated by renowned R&B singer Erykah Badu.

Yellow Fever was originally released in 1976, during Fela's extraordinarily prolific 1975-77 purple period, when he released 24 albums in Nigeria alone. The title track is one of Fela's defining masterpieces. Sung in Broken English, the language he adopted in order to make his words understood beyond Yoruba speakers, the lyrics rail against the fashion for skin-whitening creams.

All albums have been fully remastered and are housed in sleeves featuring recreations of the LPs' original artworks.
