Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of this 1969 album. Never before released on CD, this is the collectable debut album from African-American Poet, musician, film director, screenwriter, playwright, novelist, composer Melvin Van Peebles, recorded for A&M Records in 1968. Titled after Van Peebles' nickname, Brer Soul is an album of street Jazz and social poetry, pre-empting Rap and Hip Hop. For Brer Soul, Van Peebles utilized the 'sprechgesang' form of songwriting, where the lyrics were spoken over the music, which he learnt translating Mad magazine in France in the mid-1960s. Cherry Red. 2010.
