A Message From The Tribe

Sale price$27.98


The Tribe founders' collaborative debut, remixed from the original multi-track master tapes under the direction of its creators and lacquered by Bernie Grundman. The Tribe label, one of the brightest lights of America's 1970 jazz underground, receives the Now-Again reissue treatment. This is your chance to indulge in the music and story of one the most meaningful, local movements of the 20th Century Black American experience, one that expanded towards the cosmos, in the words of the collective themselves, "Music is the healing force of the universe". Included in an extensive, oversized booklet, Larry Gabriel and Jeff "Chairman" Mao take us through the history of the Tribe, in a compelling story that delves not just into the history of the label and it's principals, but into the story of Black American empowerment in the latter half of the 20th Century. It features never before seen archival photos and rare ephemera from Tribe's mid-1970s heyday.
