Afrique: Soul Makossa; The Independents: The First Time We Met; Don Covay: Super Dude 1

Bob Fisher, Cream, September 1973

THERE MUST be some crap music coming out of the States, or is it me? Can't I discern between the good, the bad and the indifferent. I'm talking about Black Music, or, as it used to be called, R&B or Soul or, as John Sinclair has dubbed it, ethnic folk dance music. Really? Whatever you call it the session men are not satisfied with sitting in on all the million sellers and now make their own albums like Soul Makossa.
