Various - Black & Proud: The Soul Of The Black Panther Era Vols.1 & 2
Reissue of great 2005 compilation. A really wonderful compilation of some of the hardest, most pounding a righteous soul ever recorded, geared to be a sort of unofficial soundtrack to the Black Panther movement of the late 60s and early 70s! It's a proud mix of both longstanding hard soul and funk favorites and more obscure cuts alike, including "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" by Gil Scott-Heron, "Heritage Of A Black Man" by Sam Dees, "Panther" by the Last Poets, "Right On" by Sons Of Slum, "Be Black" by Grady Tate, "You're The Man" by Marvin Gaye, "Ghetto Reality" by James Brown, "Ghetto Child" by Curtis Mayfield, "Won't Bleed Me" by Melvin Van Peebles, "Do You Remember Malcolm" by Miriam Makeeba" and lots more. 19 cuts in all - with a really nice booklet of photos, notes, an essay, biographical details and more, complete in both English and German.
