Happy Thanksgiving!

And here’s a special one for the occasion. This record by Eugene McDaniels caused outrage when it was released in 1971. Senior members of the Nixon administration personally contacted Atlantic Records and demanded that this artist be shelved. Unfortunately, Atlantic gave in to the pressure, and did not record or release anything else by McDaniels again, although he continued to enjoy a successful career as a songwriter. This LP was heavily sampled by the hip-hop crowd over the years, it’s not hard to understand why. Happy Thanksgiving! 😉
