50th Anniversary Limited Edition 45rpm Double LP!
Pressed on 1 Green Marble Vinyl & Red Marble Vinyl!

Afrodisiac is the fifth in the series of celebratory Fela 50th Anniversary reissues. Like its predecessors in the series, this double LP edition is on color vinyl; the A/B side is green marble and C/D side is on red marble. The LP is wrapped in a gold foil OBI strip with a brief essay on the album and Fela's global impact on music.

The songs on Afrodisiac were tracks that Fela and the Nigeria 70 (Later Africa 70) re-recorded at Abbey Road Studios in 1972 after they had become hits in Nigeria. The best known song on the album is "Jeun Ko Ku," a satire about gluttony and Fela's first major hit across West Africa. In Pidgin English the title means "chop and quench", which, in turn, means "eat and die" in Standard English.

Afrodisiac was first re-issued on vinyl in 2014 as part of the Fela Box Set #3 curated by Brian Eno.
