Perambulator 14:36
Frustration 13:42


Until now one of the lost treasures in Fela’s discography, the title track of this album is said by some discographers to have originally been released in 1978, as the flipside of “Shuffering and Shmiling,” on the French label Barclay. The Perambulator album itself – “Perambulator” b/w ”Frustration” - was first released in 1983 on the Lagos International label. In 1998 both tracks were included on a Victor label CD along with “Original Sufferhead,” but apart from that, nothing. The album has been eagerly sought after by collectors for decades.
