what’s the word for socially conscious soul music?


Alongside Listen, Whitey!and the other comps mentioned in that post, there’s also the excellent What’s The Word? (Socially Conscious Soul Music)(2011) as conceived & compiled with love by Dean Rudland for v/a Backbeatsseries three on Harmless (currently part of the Demon Music Group) … budget priced, as it should be with catalogue music. Some tracks to convince you: “Hey brother” (based on “Hey Joe”) by the Identities and “(We gotta) Bust out of the ghetto (pts 1 & 2)” by Moody Scott (both 1970).
