Iconic, influential gospel album highlights civil rights movement
Liner note booklet and limited time album download included
Released in 1966, two years after the "Freedom Summer" of 1964, when civil rights activists concentrated their energy on registering black voters in the South, activist singer Barbara Dane collaborated with the then up-and-coming quartet The Chambers Brothers to record a powerful politically charged gospel album that spoke directly to the issues of the day.
The vinyl reissue of Barbara Dane and the Chambers Brothers, which includes a liner note booklet and digital download, is part of Folkways Records' 70th anniversary celebration series, revisiting some of the most iconic and influential albums released on the record label.
The album includes a version of Malvina Reynolds' "It Isn't Nice" call for positive change.
