V.A. - BACK TO BLACK (CD)


This album is released in conjunction with a major exhibition of the same name at the Whitechapel Gallery in London, which has been heavily featured in several national newspapers. Compiled by legendary London crate digger STEVE PICTON, the album features music which has not received widespread recognition, bringing to the fore artists who are lesser known but whose work has not only musical but political and social significance. Very few of the selected tracks have been re-released since the time of their production. Beautifully packaged in a striking gold slipcase with solid black CD-case, the album features a superb selection of music from the r&b of THE LOST GENERATION, the classic dub of KING TUBBY, the cosmic jazz of ANDY BEY, the resonant Britfunk of CYMANDE to authentic GANGLAND STREET RHYTHMS from the late 1950's. Further featuring EUGENE McDANIELS, LLOYD WILLIAMS, THE 24CARAT BLACK GHETTO, DOUG HAMMOND, NIKKI GIOVANNI (LABEL INFO)
