Bobby Wright
Blood Of An American

Bobby Wright - now Abu Talib - was moonlighting in the clubs of NYC during the Vietnam war. When one of his band members died serving and another was drafted, he got together with his bassist and penned these two spectral, haunting soul ballads. ‘Blood Of An American’ and ‘Everyone Should Have His Day’ are as pained and affecting as anything by Wright’s contemporaries Gil Scott-Heron and Sly Stone. This 7” reissue comes with a booklet that features words by Talib and Down With Childhood author Paul Rekret.
