Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Down to Now


 Last history lesson from the Last Poets.


The Black Panther Party & Black Lives Matter are American history. Let us ponder on the lessons we can learn by examining the systemic injustice meted out against them by the racist power elite.


This is the music of Black lives. Listen & learn. We can overcome if we stand strong & proud...if we raise our voices in song united.

  2. These comps are great! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you for the comment. I've been bust getting Black History Month musick together, but when I'm just writing or formatting or just waiting on the ole PC, I've had these two comps playing on regular rotation. Been enjoying them immensely myself. Have a great day.

    2. You've been posting a lot of great stuff for Black History Month. I've also been enjoying the "Voodoo Soul" comp you posted last weekend. It's a nice introduction to New Orleans-style soul music!
