Chuck D

Here is what Chuck D aka Mistachuck said about his challenge :

My goal by year’s end is to change the face and sound of urban radio…….I’ve been in this s— 30 years, too long to just sit and let it be. I’m not going to be the grim reaper. I don’t want to be the grim reaper. But people have to stand up and we need some change, and it’s time.

Take a listen to Give We The Pride featuring one of the best female vocalist Mavis Staples (75 !!) :

Trust me, the entire LP is … Breathtaking !

@BenHarper Ben & Ellen Harper – Childhood Home (2014)

Ben & Ellen Harper Childhood Home

Emotional moments to come … Ben Harper is about to release a new album (14/05/06) with his mother, Ellen Harper. Childhood Home is a 10 tracks album; 6 Tracks written by Ben Harper, 4 by Ellen Harper, all original songs.

Intimate, Family book, Folk … Yes, deeply Folk. Heritage ! Ben Harper’s Grand parents founded in 1958 the Folk Music Center & Museum in Claremont, California. Proudly Folk then !

Ben & Ellen Harper Childhood Home

Intense, sometimes gloomy, painful…

Acoustic, while no electric instrument where used to record this Jewel. Ben Harper produced Childhood Home “like early Elvis,” he told Rolling Stone, after he and Charlie Musselwhite won the “Best Blues Album” GRAMMY Award for last year’s critically acclaimed Get Up!(Stax/Concord). “Not one thing is plugged in. It’s all acoustic. I think they’re going to call it ‘Americana,’ but it’s soul, California, folk rock, American.”

Ben Harper recently affirmed: “I’ve always figured home is where you run from, and then run to.”

Here’s a live version of Learn it all again Tomorrow, recorded live at the London Palladium on 27th April 2014 :
