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.
