Stalemate/Fear Not For Men

CD

✈

Killer stuff from Fela – and 2 albums we never see in the original! The Stalemate album has two hard groovers, both with vocals, and both very nicely driving all the way through. Fear Not For Man is an incredible record from Fela – a set that's maybe even darker and more moody than some of his other records from the time – but still pretty darn funky overall! Side one features the tremendous title cut "Fear Not For Man" – a strong message, especially given Fela's struggles at the time – set to these wicked drums from Tony Allen, which have strong breakbeat quality, but this darker current too – that oddly offbeat vibe that Allen would explore later on his own. There's also an excellent keyboard solo – snakey and spooky – over a brooding bassline that introduces all the other great elements on horns, played with a raw, raspy sensibility that reminds us that although so many others may copy this mode in recent years – there's still nothing like a classic Fela album! "Palm Wine Sound" is on the flipside – a cool instrumental that begins with a moody guitar passage, but then blasts open brilliantly with an amazing sax solo!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

A pretty compelling batch of tracks, featuring the guitar, trumpet, and vocals of Olu Dara – a rootsy player who'd first come to fame in the avant scene of the 80s, but who also has undergone an incredible transformation over the past few years. Although the album is only the 2nd to be ... CD
