He left Africa 70 in 1978, and this album fell victim to a dispute between Fela and his label, Decca. So we're lucky to have it. Lekan 'Baba Ani' Animashaun, Fela's baritone man to the end, is also a better instrumentalist than singer, but it is fascinating to hear his lithe, slightly nasal voice weaving through the punchy replies of the band's trademark female chorus. These two numbers - Low Profile and Severe - have a fractured history . 2. Tunde Williams & Africa 70 - The Beginning. 3. Lekan Animashaun & Africa 70 - Low Profile. 4.

Part 3 revisits two outstanding albums made by key Afrika 70 members during the same period-trumpeter Tunde Williams' Mr Big Mouth (Afrodisia, 1977), recorded in 1975, and baritone saxophonist Lekan Animashaun's Low Profile (Not For The Blacks) (Kalakuta Records, 1995), recorded in 1979 with additional recording in 1986.

Big Mouth: Tunde Williams Plays with Africa '70. Any time you hear a trumpet solo on an Africa '70 record, it's Tunde Williams. The man was a monster player and he was one of a few Fela comrades-at-arms to record some of his own music on the side. Big Mouth is a two-track album just like much of Fela's stuff, and the title track features a sturdy horn arrangement over a mid-tempo funk vamp.
