FREE ANGELA

Free Angela Davis

“Free Angela” is a compilation cd released in 1971 to help raise funds for the liberation of black activist (and communist, oh my soul!) Angela Davis. Angela is still very much alive and kicking on the left bank…  This beautiful soul cd features committed music and lyrics by Larry Saunders, Nitroglycerine, Tyrone Thomas, Brother Love, Soul Encyclopaedia and Dickie Wonder, and is available on cd (Secret Stash Records, Minneapolis, USA).

Secret Stash Records says: “Amidst the socially and politically tumultuous 1960s and 1970s, Angela Davis emerged as one of the era’s most controversial figures. In the early 1970s, her arrest, incarceration, and trial made international headlines and inspired a movement to free her. In April of 2013 Free Angela & All Political Prisoners, an independent film about Davis was released to much critical acclaim, fetching awards at the Toronto International Film Festival Gala World Premiere, the London International Film Festival, as well as the Stockholm International Film Festival.

Originally released in 1971, the album Free Angela was sold to raise money for the National United Committee to Free Angela Davis. It was put together by Alexander Randolph – a singer, promoter, and record label owner from Virginia. The first half of the album was recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, beginning with the title track by Larry Saunders. On his songs, Saunders’ vocals float above and transcend the ethereal backing of the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. His voice can be compared to singers like Donny Hathaway and Curtis Mayfield, but Saunders is his own man, with his own style. His work on this album is essential listening in the realm of socially conscious soul music. The second half of the album continues with solid mid-1960s rarities from Randolph’s Sound of Soul label. Sound of Soul has long been known to record collectors, with singles routinely fetching hundreds of dollars.

Working in coordination with Alexander Randolph, Secret Stash is excited to make available once again this soulful piece of history. Available on CD and vinyl, each contains an insert with detailed liner notes and photos: 8 pages of 11.5″ x 11.5″ for the LP and 32 page booklet for the CD. As always, the LP version includes a free digital download of the entire album and the CD version comes in a premium digipack. + Video

Peace Will Come (According To Plan) Melanie Safka, (copyrighted) 

For sometimes when we have reached the end
With the velvet hill in the small of my backs
And our hands are clutching the sand
Will our blood become a part of the river
All of the rivers are givers to the ocean
According to plan, according to man
There’s a chance peace will come in your life please buy one.
There’s a chance peace will come in your life please buy one
For sometime when we have reached the end
With the velvet hill in the small of my backs
And our hands are clutching the sand.
There’s a chance peace will come in your life please buy one

GIVE  IRELAND BACK TO THE IRISH

Bloody Sunday Monument, Derry, Northern Ireland

http://community.dewereldmorgen.be/blog/eddybonte/2014/12/23/give-ireland-back-to-the-irish

Both Paul McCartney and  John Lennon were very clear about the Irish “question” and the “troubles”:  Ireland belongs to the Irish and there’s no way occupation and repression can be justified.  Much later, U2  sang about Bloody Sunday.
This Radio 68 special is here to remind you of an armed struggle in Western Europe, a struggle which hasn’t been entirely settled. So much effort was mobilised to unite East and West Germany (ring ring goes the cash register), so much effort has gone into avoiding the unity of the Irish. Listen to voices from Ireland in defence of what’s theirs: their land, their language, their culture.

17:00 END OF SHOW 

Die Gedanken sind frei (Volkslied)

Die Gedanken sind frei,
wer kann sie erraten?
Sie fliegen vorbei
wie nächtliche Schatten.
Kein Mensch kann sie wissen,
kein Jäger erschießen
mit Pulver und Blei.
Die Gedanken sind frei!
