Catalog # : LP-KFR-2008 Artist : Kuti, Fela UPC : 720841206811 Label : Knitting Factory Records Street Date : 10/14/2016 The best known song on Afrodisiac is “Jeun K’oku,” a satire about gluttony (an indulgence only available to prosperous Africans). Originally recorded as a single in 1970, it had given Fela his first major hit. In Broken English, the title translates as “chop and quench,” which means “eat and die” in Standard English. It is a stonking dance track. The most enduring piece, however, may prove to be the closing “Je’Nwi Temi” (“don’t gag me”), a critique of the Nigerian political / military establishment and a defence of free speech Label: Knitting Factory Records ‎– KFR2008-1 Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Reissue Country: US Released: 2016 Genre: Jazz, Funk / Soul, Folk, World, & Country Style: Afrobeat Tracklist A1 Alu Jon Jonki Jon A2 Jeun Ko Ku (Chop And Quench) B1 Eko Ile B2 Je’Nwi Temi (Don’t Gag Me)
