The soundtrack to *the* blaxploitation film. Not that I've seen the original film either... this too needs to be fixed. I'm undecided about this one... I'm not a huge fan of this sort of 70's music, but Isaac Hayes has done a stunning job piecing this thing together I almost forgot. Having said that... it's not something I'm ever going to listen to again, with the exception of Theme from Shaft
It's not my thing, but I can see why it's in the 1001 albums to listen to. 3/5

Ago 28 2008, 5h21 por DarthBobThis evening we'll all be watching (or at least I'll be watching, I don't know about all you libertarian fuckwads out there on the internets) Obama make his acceptance speech in front of a crowd of 75,000 at Invesco Field in Denver (curiously enough the city where the New World Order will emerge from their underground bunkers at Dever International Airport then take over the world).
In celebration of the event and because acoustic sets by Springsteen and Bon Jovi don't quite cut it for me, I have compiled a playlist of songs to listen to get one's self in the mood for watching the speech.
Now what was the criteria for selecting these tunes? I felt they could be related to Obama in some way (Theme from Shaft), be vaguely political (Dollars & Cents and Cosmonaut), be explicitly political (Fight the Power), be about my pessimistic view of the electoral process (Everything Falls Apart), or be concessions to the Hillary crowd (Kool Thing). …
Ago 11 2008, 17h10 por RudiMoserIsaac Lee Hayes (* 20. August 1942 in Covington, Tennessee; † 10. August 2008 in Memphis, Tennessee)
aka Isaac Hayes died yesterday.
beside his Theme from Shaft he was very famous in the 70s. He played with Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Carla Thomas and many others.
His latest release was Raw And Refined from 1995.
He died in the age of 65 and was found in his fitness room.
Man - you made it.
Ago 11 2008, 16h17 por sonnycheeebahIt is so distressing to hear two well-loved African-American entertainers pass away over this weekend...
First, there was Bernie Mac. Though I haven't seen any of his comedy routines in full length or followed his TV sitcom, I did managed to catch his low-key yet substantial roles in films as diverse as the Ocean's Trilogy (with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, et.al.) , Charlie's Angels Full Throttle (where he did a good job as the 2nd "Bosley") and even the under-rated Bad Santa. My impression of him was that he was the heir apparent to Bill Cosby, only without The Cos' pompous sanctimoniousness.
A great character actor/stand up comedian was missed...
What really floored me this very morning when I logged onto Yahoo! was that Isaac Hayes has likewise succumbed to natural causes next to his exercise treadmill in his Memphis, TN home.
Starting out as a backup keyboardist at the legendary soul label Stax, Hayes's star rose when he started penning such hits like Sam & Dave's Hold On I'm Comin' and Soul Man

Fev 6 2008, 23h32 por BadgerJohn31The description and playlist below are from the weekly radio show (A Brief History Of…) that my friend and I host on WSUM 91.7fm Madison (the University of Wisconsin's radio station). We selected songs we felt were either historically important or just representative of each specific topic. Please comment if you feel we missed something or just to give your opinion. Remember, however, that we do this show in an hour (about 50 minutes of music). Track length is a major factor in our decisions (shorter is usually better). Thanks!
A Brief History of…The Rise of Disco examines the musical and social conditions that gave rise to disco, the now controversial genre of dance music from the mid and late 70s. The first segment of the show explains disco’s origins in smooth Southern Soul and especially in the soul sound of Philadelphia International Records. It also explains the social context in early 1970s America that fostered the development of such an apparently trivial genre. …
Ago 1 2007, 23h35 por beelzbubbaTonight on America's Public Broadcasting Service's Great Performances is the documentary Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story . Those within the broadcast's reach will see a fascinating and at times frustrating tale of Memphis's Stax/Volt Record company (b. 1959 - d. 1975; reborn December 2006). Concord Records has revived Stax, releasing the classics of the 60s and 70s, as well as some new stuff.
(for non-USians, the Great Performances link also leads to some videos from the program)
Apologies to the choir, I got to preach to those in the congregation who don't know Stax or Volt.
Here are a few of the gems from the Stax Volt catalog:
"Try A Little Tenderness"
Booker T. & the MG's
"You Don't Know Like I Know"
Sam & Dave
"Knock on Wood"
Sam & Dave
"Who's Making Love"
"Walk on By"
