Been going crazy trying to re-upload a bunch of dead files. Decided to do everyone (mostly myself) a favor & make a NEW post.
Here’s some out-of-print heavy funk by the former Last Poets member Umar Bin Hassan.
It was released in 1993 on the now defunct Axiom Records label. It features some great funk/soul luminaries: Bootsy Collins; Fuday Musa Suso; Bill Laswell; Bernie Worrel; & Buddy Miles among others.
The first track “… Scared of Revolution” has a great Gil Scott-Heron “Revolution Will Not Be Televised” vibe, as good or better. This release is a true over-looked classic that has somehow remained relatively obscure. The fact that it is out of print attests to that fact.
