Notes

The sleeve features photographs of a protest on September 30th 1979, the day before the head of Nigeria's military regime, General Obasanjo, was to hand power to a democratically elected civilian president, Shehu Shagari.

During the protest, the symbolic coffin of Fela's mother
was laid at the entrance to Dodan Barracks, Obasanjo's residence.

Fela's mother, Funmilayo Ransome Kuti, an activist and politician, had died the previous year
following injuries sustained in an attack by 'Unknown Soldiers' on Fela's Kalakuta compound.

There are 2 pressings on Kalakuta Records. The first with a gatefold sleeve and green labels, the second with a normal sleeve and white labels/black text.
