The Last Poets Discography

Last Poets were rappers of the civil rights era. Along with the changing domestic landscape came the New York City-hip group called The Last Poets, who used obstreperous verse to chide a nation whose inclination was to maintain the colonial yoke around the neck of the disenfranchised.

Thanks for your contributions juronjux, much appreciated! Have added entries for all above.

Also thanks Mona for the Jalal EP from way back, finally added above.

I've overhauled the post a bit to create separate solo sections and a comps sections.

Did some quick searching but unable to find any of those specific wants, juronjux, but will try again later.

In the meantime, have found a few extra things and added :

Jalal solo and collaborations :

* 1969 - single : "Doreilla Du Fontaine" - Lightnin' Rod (Jalal), Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Miles

Umar Bin Hassan solo and collaborations :

* 1995 - 'Funkcronomicon' - Axiom Funk - includes 'Sacred to the pain' by Umar Bin Hassan

Just a few things :
"Scatterap / Home" is a LP and not just a single.
"Panthers" is the re-edit version of "Panther" from "Time Has Come" with Dead Prez & Common. It's the same text from Umar.


Simon666 said...

Thanks again for the knowledge, Juronjux - I've edited the post according to what you've said.

Couple of things here that I didn't know existed! Thanks for everyones contributions.

Only other things I've got that spring to mind are the Laswell/Celluloid 12 inch mixes of Mean Machine from mid 80's. Unfortunately my copy is a bit too messed up now...

Also the CD version of the On-U dubplate included 'Trancendental Twins' which IMO was one of the best tracks from those sessions.


Simon666 said...

Hi c,
Messed up is better than nothing, any contributions appreciated :)

Also - I just realised that when I expanded this to include side projects, I didn't include ksn's contribution back in December of Gylan Kain's ""Blue Guerrilla" (1971) - that's now been added above. Thanks ksn!

I like this style because they represents really well what's going on in our society, I think it has been one of the best movements around the world.
