Zombie is a studio album by Nigerian Afrobeat musician Fela Kuti. It was released in Nigeria by Coconut Records in 1976, and in the United Kingdom by Creole Records in 1976. The album criticised the Nigerian government; and it is thought to have resulted in the murder of Kuti's mother Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, and the destruction of his commune by the military.
Zombie was the most popular and impacting record that Fela Kuti & Africa 70 would record - it ignited the nation to follow Fela's lead and antagonize the military zombies that had the population by the throat. Fela is direct and humorous in his attack as he barks out commands to the soldiers like: "Attention! Double up! Fall In!

The Africa 70 band is also at the peak of it's musical creativity and prowess, delivering a breath taking tempo that challenged Fela's sensuous dancers to the limit for many years at the African Shrine and at various musical shows. Of particular note are the precision and sharpness of the horn section's delivery on "Zombie", one of the best tracks ever from Africa's greatest music machine. 4 people found this helpful.

Listen: Fela Kuti & Africa '70: Zombie. Morrissey recently told The Observer Music Monthly that he could only think of one truly great British album : Roxy Music’s For Your Pleasure. Well, conservatively, I can think of at least three great Roxy Music albums (one of which, Country Life, had the misfortune of landing at on our list), though he’s right that For Your Pleasure is the best of them. More ambitious, enigmatic, and expansive than their self-titled debut, Roxy Music’s second album (and last with Brian Eno) perfectly captures the balance and tension between the keyboardist and leader Bryan Ferry
