Knitting Factory Records is proud to reissue Fela Kuti's 'J.J.D. Johnny Just Drop' on vinyl. Previously only available as part of the Box Set series, the reissue features original album artwork designed by Lemi Ghariokwu, who created the cover art for around half of Fela’s albums. Originally released in 1977, ‘J.J.D. Johnny Just Drop’ features Fela lampooning Nigeria’s "been-tos," people who had been to Europe or America to work or study, and then returned (dropped) home with European social pretensions and an inferiority complex about African culture.
