Brer Soul - Melvin Van Peebles

Brer Soul
Released on 26/07/10. Amazing stuff! A mad mix of
insanity and wisdom, with enough violent clashes of culture to shake
anyone up. Funk, soul, poetry and righteousness blend into a great
batch of tracks! Includes groovy cuts like Lilly Done the Zampoughi , The Dozens and Sera Sera Jim . Crazy! (Dusty Groove) Never
before released on CD, this is the collectable debut album from
African-American Poet, musician, film director, screenwriter,
playwright, novelist, composer Melvin Van Peebles, recorded for A&M
Records in 1968. Titled after Van Peebles nickname, Brer Soul is an album of street jazz and social poetry, pre-empting Rap and Hip-Hop. Rap
has its roots in The Dozens, an African-American verbal game in which
each player had to top his opponent by issuing the most creative
insult.
