Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. 2018 release. On the 50th anniversary of the band's inception, influential spoken word artists, poets and commentators The Last Poets have made a glorious and relevant return with their first album in over 20 years. Understand What Black Is speaks of a revolutionary struggle defined by both race and identity, that has never sounded more relevant. The group secured a legacy with seminal early records that came to be regarded as important influences on early hip hop, helping to pave the way for many socially committed emcees. Into the '90s, their tracks were sampled by Biggie, NWA, A Tribe Called Quest, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. While they remained largely on hiatus, original members Umar bin Hassan and Abiodun Oyewole committed to recording new material in 2016. The strong and contemporized voices of The Last Poets is aided by the UK production duo of Ben Lamdin (Nostaglia 77) and Prince Fatty, known for their work in acid jazz, reggae and dub productions.

Alice Coltrane remains a singular figure on the fringe of American music but her appeal is growing. While Coltrane's music is gaining wider acceptance there is an entire era of her recorded output that remains obscure, almost as if by design. Her four self-published, devotional albums of the eighties and nineties were recorded during a period in which she had withdrawn from secular life. They were manufactured and distributed in limited quantities amongst her spiritual community. Operating outside of the constraints of the commercial recording industry Coltrane was free of external pressures whether monetary or deadline. She recorded this music totally on her own terms. The resulting compositions synthesized her spiritual and musical outlook into a highly original work that is unique unto herself. Available commercially for the first time. Remastered, bucket loads of notes, available in all formats but 8-track. A loving tribute to an amazing woman. 2xLP comes with two booklets of liner notes and download card.

Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get says the opening song. Wattstax, the dynamic film of the 1972 Los Angeles event attended by over 100,000 concertgoers and first billed as the black Woodstock, gets ya plenty. It's performances burn with vitality. It's forays into the neighborhood are a time capsule of pride and pain. And the Richard Pryor comedy riffs that provide the film's running commentary are a treasure all by themselves. New generations can now experience this Special Edition that restores the film's infamous lost ending performances by Isaac Hayes. Funk, R & B, Gospel, Blues, Soul whatever your groove is, it's here, with a sparkling, remastered soundtrack. You haven't gotten down till you've flapped to Do the Funky Chicken. Spread your wings!

Featuring personal idols and luminaries like Yolanda Adams, Kim Burrell, The Clark Sisters, Commissioned, Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, his father Bishop Paul S. Morton and many more, PJ self-produced the album primarily over a month of remote recording sessions but has been working towards it his whole life. From growing up a preacher's kid to playing the organ in front of thousands of New Orleans congregation members every Sunday, earning his first paycheck for writing a Men of Standard song at age 15, and paving his own path as a multi Grammy-winning R&B artist, the church has always been at the base of PJ Morton's career. Now, he returns to those roots to deliver the inspirational music he knows is needed now more than ever.
