It actually isn't much different in length than most of Fela Kuti's releases from this era (which usually contained two songs adding up to half-an-hour), but still made for rather short value. The song is decent enough, making extensive use of a live crowd and busy hand-drummed rhythm at the beginning, then gliding into a typical (if very long) Afro-funk-jazz vamp

It's not clear if this is a repackage, reissue, or re recording on this version.
