Notes

Private label release.
Recorded live at the Fox Theater, Detroit, MI, USA, November 7, 1986.

"I use my music to speak, I don't speak to do music" (Fela, 1991)

The wendy HOUR produced this three CD set to keep alive the music, words, and spirit of Fela Anikulapo Kuti (Chief Priest of the Kalakuta Republic). Fela used his music to influence social change, and will be remembered as the ultimate political musician. What a rare breed he is in today's apathetic climate. Fela and Egypt 80 graced the stage of the historic Fox Theater in Motown for over two hours, on November 7, 1986. What a great evening! Thanks! So long friend!

Fela Anikulapo Kuti (1938-1997)
