Double green and red colored vinyl LP pressing. Afrodisiac is the fifth in the series of celebratory Fela 50th Anniversary reissues. Like it's 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 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.

Track Listing:

A Alu Jon Jonki Jon
B Jeun Ko Ku (Chop And Quench)
C Eko Ile
D Je'Nwi Temi (Don't Gag Me)
