Description

A collection of street poetry by this collective that were doing in seventies Los Angeles what The Last Poets were doing in New York at that time, commenting on social inequalities through poetry. On this album various poets show their sharp feel for timing & taste; telling stories and enforcing the main speaker's words by repeating what's just been said. On some points supported by sparse instrumentation, on other only words. If you are into poetry or souljazz this one is not to be missed!
