FELA KUTI - ROFOROFO FIGHT
Storming stuff! Roforofo Fight hails from 1972 an early full-length Fela LP, filled with 4 tight groovers that stand with his best work!"Roforofo Fight"builds up after a great spoken intro over a pumping rhythm section to a fast-time groover that has the drums working overtime to keep up with the political power of the cut and is an absolute stormer - a real dance floor destroyer.
I remember Bob Jones dropping this about 1983 in the Jazz Room at Caister and the whole crowd went fucking beserk - a hord of pissed up jazz funkers(including Magnum from Jazzheads Blogspot) all going bonkers to Fela - what a sight!!!!! "Go Slow" begins with this mad trumpet solo that you'll recognize from a famous sample, especially as it mixes in with keyboards; and "Question Jam Answer" and "Trouble Sleep Yanga Wake Am" are every bit as great.Totally brilliant!!!
