Biography

“Fela will live forever!” That was the anthem chanted by the million strong mourners as they paid their last respects at Fela’s funeral. Mention his name, not just in Nigeria, but anywhere in Africa and you can be sure that it will raise a smile and the soft, fond utterance “Fela!” The same can be said for the hip-hop universe, whether in New York, Tokyo, Sydney ...

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have bought all of Fela's albums over the years, and Shuffering
was one of the last I bought. Mainly because you'll find both
Shuffering & Shmiling and No Agreement on the Black President
collection, but in shorter versions.
Here you get the full 21:31 of Shuffering and Shmiling and the
second part of No Agreement, that was cut midway on Black
President, and it's on this part Fela and his singers come in.

Both songs rank among Fela's finest, and the full versions
are definitely superior to the shorter ones, so if you're
hooked on Fela this is essential.

Furthermore, Dog Eat Dog is one of Fela's full flavoured
instrumentals, and place this album togheter with other
classics such as; Shakara/London Scene, Zombie, Roforofo Fight/
Fela Singles and Opposite People/Sorrow Tears And Blood.

Among the very best of Fela's extraordinary recordings 1 Dec. 2008
By Hussein Ibish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This combination of Shuffering and Shmiling and No Agreement is one of the very best Fela CDs on the market today. Shuffering and Shmiling is a remarkable track, musically infectious and a prime example of polyrhythmic afrobeat, as well as a stirring denunciation of religious nonsense and the harm it can do to long-suffering peoples. It went over very badly with many Nigerians when first released, but retains its biting critique and is no less powerful for the intervening years. This long version is far superior to the truncated one on CDs such as Music is the Weapon of the Future and other releases. That goes double for the second title track on the CD: No Agreement is fairly bland as a political statement, but is among the most moving of all Fela's pieces musically - funky beyond belief and with some of the better soloing in any of his recordings. This is indispensable Fela, on the order of Roforofo Fight, Zombie, Original Sufferhead and the other classics. Buy at once!
