Black Belt Symphony – Brotherman
Format: Vinyl, 7", Single, Limited Edition, Reissue
Released: Sep 2016
Two political fueled Soul Jazz cuts out of California in the early 1980. Black Panther related. Featuring the vocals of the late Somayah 'Peaches' Moore Khaliq. She lays down a serious message over the great, sligthly reggae tingled 'Brotherman' The highlight is the jazz funky 'Geronimo Pratt' telling the story of the falsely imprisoned Black Panther member who was released in the 90s on false charges. Another sad story in the long line of wrong convictions in the American legal system. This EP is an absolute gem! Rare limited 500 only replica reissue from the very hard to find 1983 original. Comes with jacket.
