    I loved Blues People when I first read it and when I re-read it recently I still thought it was very powerful
    More polemic than history but good for all that
    And Black Music is more straight forward jazz criticism
    I must confess his later stuff that I've read hasnt had the same impact on me
    "Record collecting is no mere hobby, no innocuous leisurely diversion. It is a feverish passion bordering on dementia, driving those under the influence to irrational, compulsive, fanatical extremes."

      One of the stranger disco-funk records I have was written and produced by Amiri Baraka - "You Was Dancin Need To Be Marchin So You Can Dance Some More Later On" by The Advanced Workers With The Anti-Imperialist Singers On Peoples War.

      Too few dance records have the chant - "Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought".

          Someone posted a youtube link to the track in this thread but it's now disappeared. Anyway, here it is - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5RAvDZZyCI

          Apparently Amiri Baraka also sings on the track.
