Tags done with Foobar and Tag and Rename. While that record captures the prevailing mood of these dark times pretty well, its melancholy was a bit too much for me this weekend. Although some of these musicians went back further with Gil drummer and percussionist Charlie Saunders had been with him since the beginning on Small Talk on th and Lennox fromtheir first outing in this formation was with the independent Strata-East label on Winter In America.
Yet as strange as it seems, We still live in the past. The essence of a black life lost in the hour glass. And ever since we came to this land, this country has rued the day when we would stand as one and raise our voices and say:.
A toast to all black fathers who live their lives in vain. A toast to all black mothers who shoulder this life in vain. Enjoy the album, and look forward to more from these guys on the blog this year. Oh and a note about the audio — I have two copies of this LP at the house, and even though both are pretty clean copies they share the same surface noise that makes me suspect the entire pressing probably suffers from it.
I listened to both and chose the better copy to work from. Imperfections aside, it was still worth the effort, especially as the TVT Records reissue on CD which I bought as soon as it came out in the 90s sounded truly awful. Thanks for the soulful music. Thank you for the wonderful video clip too. Used to own the horrid CD reissue that TVT Records released in the late 90s and sold it to a nearby record store for credit.
I think it will be up Empty Yourself - Colin Edwin - PVZ (Memory Stick, MP3, Album) alley in the soul department. Many thanks, sir. Look forward to hearing this one.
