The Spirit House Movers/The Jihad


This is tasty.

Soul Sides previews the forthcoming reissue of some classic 1968 vinyl, Black & Beautiful, Soul & Madness by Spirit House Movers which features LeRoi Jones (aka poet Amiri Baraka). check it out the sample here. if you can't wait, head over to the excellent[see comments] Nothing Is for the entire album, plus a couple more from the same provenance.

I've also found also some brilliant related footage of the Leroi Jones Young Spirit House Movers and Players, an amazing performance by a group of kids at the height of the black awareness/power era. originally broadcast on a show called Inside Bedford-Stuyvesant, it was put up earlier this year at thirteen.org in the Broadcasting While Black section.
Anyone got any more info or clips like this, let me know, drop a comment.

Would have been nice if Nothing Is asked if he could re post my album from Sounds at the Edge

I didn't realize that was your rip, Reza (I think I got this from your place a good while back). I'm happy to take down the link if you'd like.

The best movers huh? This sounded great when doing some house work. I usually listen to a lot of different types of music when doing chores or when studying. I guess it just helps me relax and ease my mind.

Were you moving your spirit house?
