Various Artists: Am I Black Enough For You CD Track Listing

A list by checkmate

Various Artists Am I Black Enough For You (1995)
Pride, power and politics, promises the sleeve blurb, attempting to root this 12-track assemblage in the insurrectionary Afro-American milieu of the '70s. Unfortunately, though a suitably comin'-atcha aura surrounds Billy Paul's chattering title\ntrack and The Isley Brothers' Freedom, we soon skeet off (thanks, one would assume, to the contractual limitations set\nby the honky establishment) into all kinds of tangential pastures: souled-up schmaltz courtesy of Harold Melvin & The\nBluenotes, a couple of instrumentals, and The Jacksons' Man Of War, which packs as much political punch as We Are\nThe World. More baffling still is the inclusion of Sly & The Family Stone's Thank You For Talkin' To Me Africa, a soporific re-write of Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Again) that palls beside the more energised aspects of his oeuvre.
This blues cd contains 13 tracks and runs 64min 6sec.
