Del Jones' Positive Vibes Court Is Closed (Hikeka) M / M U.S.'2000 65.00*
recorded in the early 70's and is a natural component of a musical struggle as intense as the warfare in the streets. documented here and trapped in every note, every wail, every cry is an anquished plea for a better tomorrow.the album jacket itself showed the strain of struggle situated in the simmering inner-city. ...in the composition "vibe-ing theme" I announced to the world what this music was about. in the anti-drug three movement piece with "prelude ta hell, needle 'n spoon and cold turkey" I attacked this problem knowing the result an unchecked drug epidemic would bring. now look outside and see a society wrecked! "soul of black folks" praised my Afrikan music culture. meanwhile "court is closed" predicted the coming turmoil. "inside black America" supplied an overview of the people-pain locked in racism's continuation. finally "times are hard, friends are few" punctuated it all in a hail of drum-fire as the world turned away from sanity. ...I am proud this music is still alive as the situation that produced it has hemorrhaged. festering exploited casualties dot the landscapes of tomorrow. executive producers Rich Haupt & Scott Bubrig have gone to great lengths to preserve the integrity of this record. cosequently, I can still speak from the cutting edge of our time.
today I am CEO of "Eye Of The Storm Communications, Inc." author of four books "Culture Bandits 1 & 11", "The Black Holocaust", "Global Genocide" and "The Invasion Of The Body Snatchers: Hi-Tech Barbarians". in closing, the new musical project I'm working on is entitled "Dance of 'De Elder" and it will be completed soon for outta the drum I come with thunder 'n lightnin'!")
