"Baba Ani’s two songs here were tinkered with over a period of years, but the basic tracks date from the last days of the regime of General Olusegun Obasanjo, around 1979.... By mid-1979, Fela had finally opened his new Afrika Shrine in Ikeja (an outlying suburb of Lagos). Animashaun was appointed bandleader of the new band, which was also named Afrika 70 until 1981 when Fela rechristened it Egypt 80.... Baba Ani’s songs remained unreleased for years. Work on the tracks resumed in Paris in 1986 (in a marathon recording session which followed Fela’s release from an 18-month prison term), but they were again shelved until 1995, when they were finally released on Fela’s Kalakuta Records as Kalakuta 003." - Michael Veal (Honest Jon's website) https://honestjons.com/shop/artist/Tunde_Williams_Lekan_Animashaun/release/Mr._Big_Mouth_Low_Profile_Not_For_The_Blacks
