Noise For Vendor Mouth (New LP)Fela Kuti
Label: Knitting Factory
Released in 1975, this album began Fela’s greatest and most prolific era. He had created and refined the perfect sonic blend that we now know as Afrobeat - lyrics that took on the social and political struggles of everyday people, drum rhythms he and Tony Allen honed to perfection, sharp punctuating horns, tenor and rhythm guitars, and call and response vocals. This album also follows his template of him using an entire side of an LP to build an unbreakable groove. This edition is pressed on Jabuticaba Red (opaque red) vinyl.
