ROCK: Roots Rock, WORLD: World Beat
âThis is the best political âmusicâ CD Iâve heard since George Bush got selected in 2000. A lot of the political CDs from the last 6 years are filled with more angst than talent. But the musical chops on this one are equal to the politically charged lyrics.â Lee Courtney, Music Director Community Radio WMNF 88.5 Tampa
"Power To The People" features original songs -- and four covers of old favorites -- about protest, free speech, electoral dysfunction and general angst about the state of the nation. Timed to correspond with the mid-term elections, this cd features a wide range of musical styles - from the world groove of Cold Joon to Addek's gripping hip-hop version of Dylan's classic "Masters of War" - with acoustic rock, blues and Americana in between.
