NOW ON VINYL!!! A compilation of obscure late 60's and mid 70's recordings that encompass rock, soul, jazz, poetry, comedy and religious sermons blended with Black Nationalism from Light In the Attic!

As the 'soundtrack' to the acclaimed 200-pg hardcover book from Fantagraphics, Listen Whitey! captures an era when revolutionaries were pop culture icons.  In this unique cross-cultural overview Bob Dylan's 1971 single 'George Jackson' (never before released) sits alongside Gil Scott-Heron, John & Yoko, and the Black Form label, Motown's early '70s Black Power imprint featuring Elaine Brown, Stokely Carmichael, and Amiri Baraka.
