✨✧ Seun Kuti & Egypt 80Long Way To The Beginning ... LP
Knitting Factory, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the fiercest, hardest work we've ever heard from Seun Kuti – a record that bristles with anger and energy right from the start – and which really has him lighting a whole new sort of fire under the Eygpt 80 band! Seun's got this intense look on the artwork of the record – including a Tupac-like photo on the back – and that vibe is definitely matched by the razor-sharp grooves on the set – and the brash politics of the lyrics – which include the especially memorable "IMF (International Motherf*cker)" – which is his way of carrying on the energy in the senior Fela's classic "ITT (International Thief Thief)". Other tracks include "African Smoke", "Higher Consciousness", "Kalakuta Boy", "African Airways", and "Black Woman". LP, Vinyl record album
