Why Black Men They Suffer

MORE INFO:
Limited yellow colored vinyl LP pressing. Recorded in 1971 with Ginger Baker behind the board and sitting in alongside fellow drumming legend Tony Allen, Why Black Man Dey Suffer was originally deemed too controversial for release by his label at the time. The title track is a history lesson on the oppression of the African man - detailing the litany of abuses they have suffered from being taken as slaves to having an alien people impose a new culture upon them, take their land, fight them, and set them against one another. The B-side is Fela's ode to the poorest of Lagos' poor that lived in the Mushin district; he contrasts the corruption of the upper classes with the humble lives of the people in Mushin. This edition is pressed on I?in yellow (transparent yellow) vinyl.
