"This edition of Original Sufferhead is a major event. With the release of box set #5, and now on this reissue, the title track of this magnificent album is presented in its full-length, 25 minutes 24 seconds glory. While preparing the master disc for the box set, our engineer Jedi, Colin Young, discovered four minutes of “lost” material on the B-side of the original pressing, including a superb keyboard solo by Fela. This had been omitted from subsequent reissues. The restored version used here starts and finishes with Fela’s keyboard work, a typically venturesome blend of futurism and visceralism.

Original Sufferhead was the first album Fela released under Egypt 80’s name (he had disbanded Afrika 70 in 1979).

On the title track, arguing from the personal to the political, Fela describes the inhuman treatment and poor living conditions experienced by working class Nigerians, the people he called sufferheads. In “Power Show,” Fela sings about the two-tier system dividing Nigerian society, in which the rich get treated one way and the poor another. This edition is pressed on ewuro (opaque light green) vinyl."

Overtake Don Overtake Overtake was the penultimate album of newly recorded studio material released by Fela before he passed in 1997. Like its immediate predecessor, Beasts Of No Nation (also 1989), and its follow-up, Underground System (1992), the album finds Fela continuing to campaign for human rights and social change despite the relentless beatings, jailings and general harassment he had received from successive military regimes since the start of the 1970s. This edition is pressed on alawọ ewe(transparent green) vinyl.

"Fela used the cover of Ikoyi Blindness to announce his change of middle name from Ransome, which he now considered a slave name, to Anikulapo, which means “he who carries death in his pouch.” The front cover shows Ransome crossed out and Anikulapo added above it. Fela also used the album cover to announce the Africanisation of Africa 70’s name, changing it to Afrika 70.

In the title track, Fela draws attention to the economic chasm separating the haves and have-nots of Nigerian society, contrasting the get-rich-at-all-costs mindset of the residents of the prosperous Lagos suburb Ikoyi with the more community-minded attitude of the poor inhabitants of the Mushin, Maroko, Ajegunle and Somolu neighbourhoods. Ikoyi residents are blind to the sufferings of less fortunate people, says Fela.

Fela returns to the topic on the second track, “Gba Mi Leti Ki N’Dolowo (Slap Me Make I Get Money).” In Lagos in 1975 and 1976, there had been an upsurge in police and military personnel assaults on people in the street; motorists were commonly pulled out of their vehicles and given a whipping for minor traffic offences. Scandalously, the police and soldiers were being allowed to get away with corruption in broad daylight. In the lyric, Fela demands that the judiciary administer the law equally, without fear or favour. This edition is pressed on iresi(opaque white) vinyl."

Tri colored Vinyl (Red, Gold, Green). Junior Marvin is widely recognized as an all-time great reggae musician and Musical Director and guitarist of Bob Marley's iconic band, The Wailers. Junior's new album, Happy Family, will be released 2/16/24 and will coincide with the theatrical release of One Love, the Bob Marley Paramount biopic feature film on 2/14/24. In the film, the role of Junior is played by his real-life son, Davo, who is also a musical artist. The first single from Happy Family will be Junior's new recording of "One Love". Junior Marvin was born in Jamaica and grew up in London and met the late Tuff Gong icon on Valentine's Day in 1977 (ironically the same day the film will be released) who touted him as the "young Jimi Hendrix of London". Marley immediately asked Junior to join his band as lead guitarist and became one of Marley's closest friends up until his death. Junior's guitar playing was a huge influence on Marley, and his musicianship can be clearly heard on such seminal Marley tracks as "Could You Be Loved" (which Junior originally wrote and gave to Marley), "Waiting in Vain, " "Buffalo Soldier, " "The Heathen", "One Love" and "Jamming".

An irreplaceable icon of K-pop, IVE, announces their return that is expected to be the peak of perfection. With expressions and performances that exude confidence and music that reflects a strong sense of identity, IVE will show a captivating transformation in their new album. There is no wavering when it comes to expressing oneself and through this message, IVE’s trajectory is becoming increasingly clear.   

IVE’s first mini album <I’VE MINE>, seamlessly navigates between their signature unique style and a bold new transformation. IVE’s new image is impressive in that it goes beyond music and evokes a broader theme. Their message of self-assurance remains constant, but their new change is sure to exceed everyone’s expectations.

Triple Title Tracks – IVE’s Endless Transformation

Through this album, IVE expresses a diverse range of images of oneself from varying perspectives. The three title tracks, ‘Either Way’ from the perspective of others, ‘Off The Record’ what we discover in each other and ‘Baddie’ finding another version of ourselves, all express an infinitely expanding message. The diverse ways of expression include showing curiosity from a young girl’s perspective and touching upon sensitive emotions to evoke empathy. The concepts of the three songs match the mood and style of each individual track and give a range of styles for listeners to enjoy.

The pre-release single, ‘Either Way’ is about oneself that is not free from the gaze of others. Beginning with dreamy synths, the track creates a lyrical atmosphere that blends seamlessly with the members’ emotional vocals to draw out the listener’s empathy. The lyrics “Let’s find the real me amidst the misunderstandings created by countless other people’s gazes” written by singer-songwriter Sunwoojunga, depict the irony and our experiences in modern society.

Another pre-release single, ‘Off The Record’ expresses IVE’s approach to love in a more familiar way. Written by Seo Ji Eum, who has been with IVE since the beginning of their career, ‘Off The Record’ portrays the stories of young girls who are curious about love during a deep, sleepless night. The track combines the colorful voices of the members over a rhythmic beat, evoking vivid emotions like a scene from a musical film. The song illustrates IVE’s secretive late night conversation, highlighting the curiosity and daring imagination that can only be felt before becoming adults.

The final title track, ‘Baddie’, defies all expectations. While delivering a message of self-assurance that is the core of IVE’s identity, it presents a completely different version of oneself that showcases a bold and cool IVE with a darker charm. With lyrics written by BIG Naughty, the song features a powerful trap beat and unique electric bass sound that makes the track simple yet full of sound. The addictive hook and powerful rap are more than enough for listeners to experience the unique charm of IVE that has never been seen before. 

IVE’s first mini album <I’VE MINE>, maintains the group’s distinctive style while showcasing unpredictable and endless new transformations. The overarching message remains constant: a narrative about the inherent charm in showing one’s real ‘self’ and not hesitating to directly speak up about honest emotions. Characterized by their confidence and style that resonates with everyone, IVE will continue to captivate audiences with their enduring stylishness.
