50th Anniversary Edition 45 RPM 2LPs

Double LP pressed at 45 RPM on marbled red and marbled green vinyl

Single pocket wide-spine jacket, wrapped with a gold foil OBI strip

Afrodisiac is the fifth in the series of celebratory Fela 50th Anniversary reissues. Like its predecessors in the series, this double LP edition is on colored vinyl; the A/B side is green marble and C/D side is on red marble. The LP will be wrapped in a gold foil OBI strip with a brief essay on the album and Fela's global impact on music. 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 song on the album is "Jeun Ko Ku," a satire about gluttony and Fela's first major hit across West Africa. In Pidgin English the title means "chop and quench," which, in turn, means "eat and die" in Standard English.
