✨✧ Iceberg SlimReflections ... CD
ALA/Infinite Zero, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic album of bad-rapping spoken material from Iceberg Slim – one of the hippest 70s sets of its type, and a great audio tribute to the man who wrote the books Pimp, Trick Baby, and Mama Black Widow! Slim reads his own work in a very laidback style, but one with a slinky, pimpish feel too – kind of a relaxed version of the Lightning Rod mode, with similar themes delivered in rhyming prose – maybe the west coast take on territory explored by The Last Poets, or maybe the audio equivalent of the blackspolitation album The Mack – in comparison to more righteous narratives of the time. Backings are by the Rod Holloway Quartet – who hit some great bluesy modes on the set – vamping behind Slim's cool vocals, which themselves are recorded with a nicely pointed quality. Titles include "Mama Debt", "Durealla", "The Fall", and "Broadway Sam". Right up there with Watts Prophets, Last Poets, and Lightning Rod for sheer 70s hipness! (Soul, Spoken Word) CD
