Amiri BarakaIt's Nation Time ... LP
Black Forum/Motown, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
An amazing record that's as powerful as the political message of the title – the hippest record ever cut by Amiri Baraka, and that's saying a heck of a lot!

One of the few rare albums on the Maple label – a 70s imprint that's known for some incredible funk and soul!

Folkways, 1966. Very Good ... $14.99
A weird little album from the Folkways label – one that features a bunch of 50s-sounding R&B tracks, but packaged almost in an ethnographic style – as if commercial American music was being examined from an outside scientific source!

Atco, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
Although Barrabas began their career mostly as a soulful rock band, by this album, they're sort of heading in an uptempo funky club style – not really funk, or disco, but kind of an early blend of both, along with some of their older rock leanings. The record includes the funky tracks "S ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
