✨✧ Nikki GiovanniLike A Ripple On A Pond (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Modern Harmonic, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A tremendous little record from a time when whole new ideas of righteous pride and power were hitting the record racks – a moment that's perfectly summed up in a treasure like this! Poet Nikki Giovanni had already gotten some acclaim for her words on paper – and here, the message of her writing is blended with stunning work from the New York Community Choir – a very hip gospel group with lots of secular elements in their rhythms and arrangements – handled here wonderfully by director Benny Diggs. Nikki speaks her own words in between sung passages by the group – for a set that's got a very deep spirit, and strong secular appeal too. Titles include "Conversation", "Prison Poem", "Mothers", "Straight Talk", and the great "Scrapbook", set to Duke Pearson's "Christo Redentor". (Soul, Spoken Word) LP, Vinyl record album

Nikki GiovanniWay I Feel (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Niktom/Modern Harmonic, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
One of the funkiest albums ever cut by the mighty Nikki Giovanni – a set that has these fantastic arrangements from Arif Mardin that are in the best style of early 70s Atlantic Records soul – provided with drums from Bernard Pretty Purdie, keyboards from Richard Tee, guitar from Cornell Dupree, and bass from Doug Bascomb! Yet over and above the music, Nikki's clearly the star of the set – delivering her own words in a blend of funk and poetry that really sets a whole new standard for the genre – even amidst some of the heavy company that Giovanni was keeping at the time. Titles include "A Certain Peace", "The Women Gather", "The Way I Feel", "Just An NY Poem", "Seduction/Kidnap Poem", "Winter Poem", and "My House". (Soul, Spoken Word) LP, Vinyl record album
