Release Date:10/16/2015;Notes:Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. Everything Scatter, originally released in 1975, is one of several masterpieces from early in Fela's mid-1970s purple period. In three extraordinarily productive years, Fela released 20 some albums of new material. The purple period continued up to and immediately beyond the Nigerian army attack of February 1977 which destroyed Fela's self-governing commune, Kalakuta Republic. By the time Everything Scatter was recorded, Fela had put all Afrobeat's key elements in place: the signature rhythms he had developed with drummer Tony Allen edgy, jousting tenor and rhythm guitars call and response vocals fat horn arrangements and extended, jazz-based horn and keyboard solos politically confrontational lyrics and, crucially, the Broken English Fela adopted to take his message beyond Yoruba speakers.;Special Attributes:DIGITAL DOWNLOAD CARD
