Knitting Factory Records is proud to release the long-awaited vinyl reissue of Confusion.

With the exception of some lo-fi pirate editions, this Knitting Factory Records reissue series is the first time Fela's LPs have been made available as individual vinyl albums since they were originally released during his lifetime.

This epic Afrobeat album contains just one eponymous track clocking in at just over 25 minutes in length, and beginning with a mysterious and psychedelic musical interplay between Fela on organ and Tony Allen on drums. As the song takes on a righteously funky groove, Fela evokes the chaos of Lagos – the multitude of regional dialects, the gnarly traffic jams, the absence of a policeman to take charge – as a metaphor for the larger problems of post-colonial Nigeria.
