Eugene McDaniels - Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse
barcode: 646315 715026
Sampled to death by the 90 s hip-hop elite, including Beastie Boys, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, and A Tribe Called Quest, this Administration-upsetting LP showcases this former “jazz freak” as a slightly less cerebral Gil Scott-Heron, with his direct socially conscious lyrics layed over some of the funkiest soul-jazz of the early 70 s. A ridiculously rare-groove find for years, the influence of the LP is incalculable, forging a path for hip-hop and soul that would continue to keep the music and message of the album relevant to this day. The man would later produce hit records for Roberta Flack, Gladys Night, and Nancy Wilson, but for for a time Eugene was not trying to please anyone, but just kicking back at The Man a little.
