about

Fear Not For Man was written in the heat of Fela’s conflict with the military. The title track is a provocation expressing Fela’s lack of fear in the face of the authoritarian regime’s brutality; no matter how hard they beat him, they would never break him. This is made even more explicit on the album cover, which depicts Fela, bleeding, and yet still playing the sax. The b-side, Palm Wine Sound, is an instrumental version of a song written in the 1960’s in the traditional highlife style promoting the local drink.
