Originally released inthis LP had Fela Kuti solidifying the format that would take him into international visibility in the years to come: extended tracks with grooves that mixed African and funk rhythms, punctuated by rudimentary lyrics. There are just four songs on the album, none shorter than seven minutes, and all but one going over the ten-minute mark.
More than a dozen strong, his band, the Africa '70cooks pretty well on tracks that fuse jazz, soul, and African music in a trancelike fashion that avoids becoming stale, despite the length of the arrangements. However, it's Fela and Africa '70not Baker Entanglement - Parenthetical Girls - Entanglements, who are the dominant presence on a record that sounds much like a mixture of James Brownfusion, and Nigerian forms.
