1. V.I.P. (Part 1 and 2) - Fela Kuti

Knitting Factory Records is proud to Fela Kuti's 'V.I.P.' on vinyl, previously only available as part of the Box Set series. 'V.I.P. Vagabonds In Power' was recorded live at the Berlin Jazz Festival in autumn 1978 and released the following year. It is a ferocious and lyrically exalted attack on the abuse of state power. The festival straddled the cusp of the break-up of Africa 70 and the formation of Egypt 80 in spring 1979, and 'V.I.P. Vagabonds In Power' was the last album Fela made with the drummer Tony Allen, who had been with him since 1964 and acted as Africa 70's bandleader. [Excerpt taken from historian Chris May]
