Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose

The soundtrack to the film version of Giles Foden's The Last King of Scotland features some great cover versions: Kris Kristofferson's Me and Bobby McGee by Ugandian soul singer Angela Kalule and Super Mazember's Kasongo performed by the Afrigo band. The scene above re-creates the smokey atmosphere of a seventies nightclub in Kampala. The rest of the LP is good and well worth checking out.
