Various Artists  : Stand Up And Be Counted Vol 2

8 / 10

Another volume of unashamedly didactic, seriously funky black power-inspired anthems from The Watts Prophets' 'Dem Niggers Ain't Playing' to Rusty Bryant's 'Free At Last'.





Necessary or evil? Today's gangsta whippersnappers should be tied to chairs and made to listen to this as a reminder that there's more to black music than gold chains and women's arses. Check The Isley Brothers' storming 'Fight The Power' here, borrowed wholesale by Public Enemy.
