It’s always nice when people mention your online work fondly. I recently saw a comment where someone mentioned my music criticism series from 2009, Deploying A Little Negro Spirit.
I thoroughly enjoyed writing the cultural assessment and contributions of blacks in music. I’ve also pointed out how empowering the disco era was for women (and gays), which is why the “establishment” sought to reorder any progress that resulted in higher consciousness and freedom of expression.
If you’re reading them for the first time enjoy.
The continuation with artists like Emeli Sande.
I had to link because the addition of N’Dea Davenport elevated this Tortured Soul track to another level!
