CD Reviews

Excellent source for teaching about the beginnings of rap
Elizabeth B. Daykin | Portland, Oregon | 04/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My husband and I have both used this album successfully with our students to explore the messages of those connected with the Black Panthers and the history of rap music. I used this album, Gil Scott-Heron "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" and Public Enemy "Fear of a Black Planet." Students are very interested in rap music and understanding it's history and how the message has changed over the years (critical thinking). It was also interesting to see how many students thought the Last Poets had recorded in the 1990s. This album is also great to listen to on a personal level because it provides a different, more cutting, view of the world."
Bowie recommended!
David Candler | New York, NY United States | 10/24/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"David Bowie calls The Last Poets' record 'one of the fundamental building blocks of rap.' Asked by Vanity Fair (Nov. 2003) to list just 25 albums from his vast vinyl collection that he had to get on CD, Bowie makes the Poets' debut his first choice."
A step back
Linda L. Weaver | USA | 10/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Last Poets...took me a step back in time. Their words are just as relevant today as when I first heard them...taking the time to LISTEN to their poetry. It was a very turbulent time and the music reflects that. It makes you think. There is no guessing what the words mean or what the message is. The rhythm flows and the words go, describing with intensity the times in this world we live in. Yeah, sit down and listen. Have a cup of coffee; but WAKE UP! linda"
