Fela Ransome Kuti & Africa 70's 1975 release
Expensive Shit
A Re-issue from Knitting Factory Records

Nigerian police, seeking to put down this independent-minded rascal, tried
to plant a joint on Kuti during a
gathering at his home. Wise to there plan, he quickly
swallowed the joint, but the police then threw him in 
jail to produce the evidence from
his faeces. He escaped charges with some wily plotting, and then
produced this song
mocking the police for wasting resources on hassling him instead of furthering justice in 
Nigeria. Opening brass rounds give way to interplay between Fela's narration about the episode and responses from his group of female singers.

Side one is Expensive Shit
Side Two is Water No Get Enemy  - By Dele Sosimi Sam Duckworth, The Goldsmith Vocal Ensemble & ESKA

Brand New SEALED LP from Knitting Factory Records courtesy of Kalakuta Sunrise
