Bam!...It's Bama!!

Let me ask a rhetorical question.... Do you like Gil Scott-Heron, or The Last Poets? Yeah, that's what I thought. Well, then you're gonna love Bama The Village Poet. Groovy funk jams with socio-poli-urban-underdog poems and spoken word do the trick, here. Your boy Bernard Purdie throws in the drums, along Gordon Edwards, Cornell DuPree, and Richard Tee. 1972 Chess Records, 1974 and 2011 Aware Records. Full of samples found far and wide. Enjoy 

Social Narcotics...
