HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER
“ The West Coast’s answer to The Last Poets (NY), Prophets didn’t get quite the same recognition for their contributions to raising black consciousness and laying the foundations for rap. The group was formed at the Watts Writer’s Workshop, an organization started by screenwriter Budd Schulberg designed to provide a creative outlet in the wake of the 1965 Watts riots. Father Amde Hamilton (an Ethiopian Orthodox priest, born Anthony Hamilton), Otis O’Solomon, and Richard Dedeaux met in the workshop circa 1967, and soon began performing together as Watts Prophets, setting their socially and politically conscious poetry to spare, often jazzy musical backing. They won second place in an inner-city talent show, which led to a residency at John Daniels’ Maverick’s Flat club in South Central L.A.; they also performed at fundraisers, in prisons, and around their community whenever possible. In 1969, Watts Prophets debuted with The Black Voices: On the Streets in Watts. Two years later, the group released Rappin’ Black in a White World on ALA, with lyrics and vocals provided by former Motown songwriter Dee Dee McNeil. The radical, incendiary tone of their work fit right in with the emerging black power movement, and attracted unfavorable notice from the government; the home of the Watts Writers Project was destroyed by fire in 1975 after having been infiltrated by an FBI informant”.

ERIC BURDON & THE ANIMALS: THE TWAIN SHALL MEET
“Take all that and multiply by a factor of at least “10” for 1968’s The Twain Shall Meet which, like Winds Of Change, was helmed by producer Tom Wilson. Sundazed goes stereophonic for this one, while Burdon & Co. go fully widescreen. Recorded in December of ’67, the Monterey Pop Festival afterglow still in full effect for Burdon, it’s got everything its predecessor had—the celebration and the moodiness, the psychedelia and the folk-rock, the recitations and the exhortations, the politics and the personalities—and it is also everything its predecessor was not, namely, it’s focused and it’s powerful.
From the rocking, almost boogie-esque “Closer to the Truth,” which hews close to vintage Animals electric R&B; to the baroque, orchestrally-inclined mini-symphony “Orange and Red Beams”; to the bagpipes, sitar and violin-fueled “All Is One” (itself a credible rock symphony with not-untoward prog ambitions); to the soaring, psychedelic anthem “Sky Pilot,” a masterpiece of atmosphere, composition and arrangement; The Twain Shall Meet succeeds on multiple levels. The latter track, in fact, ranks among the greatest anti-war songs ever, telling the tale of a Vietnam War chaplain counseling his charges prior to their departures into battle where death surely awaits many of them”.

ABOUT LONGPLAYTIME Radio 68 is happy to present a new show: MY GENERATION LONGPLAYTIME. The concept of LONGPLAYTIME is simple: we will play full albums, album sides or selected album tracks. We stress overlooked, forgotten, ignored, misjudged, rare, non-commercial and media-banned music and artists, throwing in a hit album for good measure. All from or related to the sixties – of course! Thanks, Ed **
OVER LANGPSPEELTIJD We presenteren we met plezier een nieuwe show: LANGSPEELTIJD. De idee achter LANGSPEELTIJD is eenvoudig: we draaien volledige albums, LP-kanten of een keuze uit een langspeelplaat. We hebben vooral oog voor muziek en artiesten die vallen onder de categorieën “vergeten, vreemd, geweerd, over het hoofd gezien, verkeerd begrepen, gecensureerd, zeldzaam “. Met nu een dan een dikke hit ertussen. Geniet van de langSPEELTIJD. Bedankt, Ed
