* 2LP Gatefold Edition

Description (English):
The album shows how the ideals of the civil rights movement, black power and black nationalism influenced the evolvement of radical African-American music in the United States of America in the intensely political and revolutionary period at the end of the 1960s following the assassinations of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King and the rise of the Black Panther party.

Featuring ground-breaking artists such as Gil Scott-Heron, Roy Ayers, Don Cherry, Oneness Of Juju, Sarah Webster Fabio, Horace Tapscott, Phil Ranelin and many others, ‘Soul Of A Nation’ shows how political themes led to the rise of ‘conscious’ black music as new afro-centric styles combined the musical radicalism and spirituality of John Coltrane and radical avant-garde jazz music alongside the intense funk and soul of James Brown and Aretha Franklin and the urban poetry and proto-rap of the streets.

The ‘Soul Of A Nation’ exhibition draws on the links between Black art forms – art, music, poetry – and how they came together during the civil rights and black power era as part of the wider black arts movement across the United States. Iconic African-Amercian revolutionary figures such as Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Angela Davis, John Coltrane and Muhammad Ali all appear in the radical artworks of Barkley L. Hendricks, Romare Bearden, Norman Lewis, Lorraine O’Grady and Betye Saar. Stuart Baker (founder of Soul Jazz Records) will appear on the panel for a ‘Soul Of A Nation: Art In The Age Of Black Power’ discussion at the gallery as part of the show.

‘Soul Of A Nation’ comes with extensive sleevenotes and exclusive photography in a large 36-page outsize booklet and slipcase. Double gatefold vinyl album format comes with full colour inners and bonus download code and full sleevenotes / photography.”

Lantern Parade - Orange Moon Soul

* Japanese Gatefold Package
Biography (English):
Lantern Parade isn’t in the Japanese hip hop mainstream, and the music has an independent feel (and indeed, the album is released by Rose Records, Shimokitazawa luminary Keiichi Sokabe’s label, rather than a hip hop label). The sound is different from ‘normal’ J-hip-hop’s sampled R&B, reggae, etc.: there’s some of that [...]
