Freedom Road

Well I promised I'd post The Pharoahs and Freedom Road so here it is, plus a couple of other great Black Power anthems.

Freedom Road
I wish I knew how it would feel to be free
The revolution will not be televised

Where can I catch it then? The Spill, mebbe?

It is supposed to play.

Not sure why it isn't.

CaroleBristol said...

OK, it plays now.

Niña might have a better shot at the "do you like?" poll than The Coasters.

I was sure the Coasters would do it (sniff)...hey, the Grauniad techies have closed comments on RR again. Maddy! Help!

steenbeck said...

They closed Clip Joint early once and Phil Hoad asked them to reopen--and they did! Maybe...

Gutted - I was taking it easy over the weekend, knowing there'd be zillions of brilliant nominations coming in from all quarters, but I figured I'd be right there for the midweek digressions. And I was all ready to compliment Chris on his death-defyingly extended metaphor - and then I saw that they'd closed the blog. In Freedom Week! Just as DarceysDad had come back! I bleeding well hope there is a conspiracy because at least that would suggest someone knows what they're doing.

I'm always amazed at how brilliant "the revolution will not be televised" is. I love Ron Carter's bass on this track.

steenbeck said...

I'd never heard the Pharoahs before and it was great--would have donded that!

I was thinking maybe Bob Marley would be the one?

I've just installed Google Chrome after much nagging by my daughter and so far I'm impressed - RR loaded much more quickly and it has a built-in searchbox which not onle finds all the treefrogdemons VERY quickly (almost instant) but tells you how many instances of it there are. (Which I won't tell you cos I'm a bit embarrassed.)

Bloody officious self-righteous techies; just as the discussion was getting good as well... Probably a plot to spare Maddy from good-nature but robust humour re the dubious knicker elastic analogy.

And worst of all, I was trying to practice my eBay skills and get a post on at exactly noon.

Nothing wrong with Coasters TFD, we all need somewhere to stand our hot beverages.

Chris said...

So this is where you went...

At least in a bar, someone calls 'time', don't they?

Darceys*hic*Dad said...

Sorry Chris. Didn't you hear us say we were off down Freedom Road to The 'Spill Inn? Were you in the toilet when the RR Arms stopped serving?

[OK DsD, that's enough! - Ed.]
