CD Reviews

Brutal, powerful poetry
da mirra' | Houston, Texas | 03/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Never have words and voice been so dramatic to my ears. African beats and jazz instrumentals filter throughout the cd with the voices of anger, intellectualism, passion, and love exploding meaningfully like an adrenalin/steriod- induced beatnik meeting. Strong as a fist and smart as an Encyclopedia, this cd smarts. Beautiful poetry..."
On the lower frquencies, I speak 4 U

""u can't handle the truth," a line so familiar from the film A Few Good Men. But that was just a film and this film isn't Hollywood nor is it Propaganda.
Right On is the soundtrack to the film of the same name which was shot in 1968 and released two years later. The film Right On had beem lost for many years except for a rough cut of it released in the mid 90's. The soundtrack however is intact and clear as if it were performed today. It's content is as true now as it was then. The Last Poets performances are powerfull and charged through out the recording. Right On is for those who seek true consciousnes in spoken word poetry and a must for those other 95 percent who snooz.

"on the lower frequencies, I speak for you"
Are they really the original Last Poets?

"Burned into my memory from repeated listens. Instantly engaging & familiar. Sweat & bulging veins are both audible, so then is the beauty. Dahveed Nelson, now living in Cleveland, claimed he started the Last Poets, culminating in an unfortunate bitter & violent rivalry between 2 separate factions of Last Poets. This release does not diminish the power of the 1970's Douglas Records incarnation. Quite the contrary, this release adds to the cultural strength & relevance of both units. As relevant today as when it was released, unlike other counterculture figures like the Fugs."
