This is your chance to own a rare piece of Fela Kuti vinyl for your collection.  This is a test pressing from Knitting Factory Records for their new 2015 release of the title.  These unique pieces of vinyl, with just twelve of each title in existence, are the very first created in the factory and serve as literal test to check a record's final sound.  

Test pressings do not include artwork as they are housed in a plain white DJ sleeve.  Each copy varies slightly with handwritten details on one side.

Fear Not For Man was written in the heat of Fela’s conflict with the military. The title track is a provocation expressing Fela’s lack of fear in the face of the authoritarian regime’s brutality; no matter how hard they beat him, they would never break him. This is made even more explicit on the album cover, which depicts Fela, bleeding, and yet still playing the sax.
