Barbara DANE 1965

1965 top quality studio recording of Folkways radical singer/songwriter Barbara Dane along with the soul/rhythm and blues backing of the Chambers Brothers (famous for their hit "Time Has Come Today"). The band sings, jams, and harmonizes to songs written to commemorate and inspire the civil rights movement of the south. An attack on the government and racists everywhere while serving as a bluesy, almost gospel-like inspiration to freedom fighters everywhere.

I can't keep pace with all this fantastic music you keep posting, Daniel - you must have an awesome music collection. So many things that I did not know of before, plus many things I have loved for a long time. I did not know Barbara Dane before, but I do know the Chambers Brothers - I was talking about them this week to a guy at work who likes Sly and Tower of Power and telling him he should check them out when he gets the time. I would love to hear this, though I have a back log of music to catch up on already. Is it too rude to ask you for the link for this album? If so, sorry my friend. But I have to say this one is making me very curious ....

Best wishes

Jim

Listening to the album again as I write these words. Pure 60s, in the best sense. White and Black music together, fusion, in struggle for a better world. Very different from the Chambers Brothers that I know of. Acoustic and folky with a lot of gospel in there too. Another terrific post Daniel, and many thanks for the URL

That's almost too much 60s-style for me. But it may were an important album back in the time when it was released. Anyway the music with its mix of gospel and folk spiced up with a bit of country is interesting nonetheless.
