Lord Nelson - Then and Now (1974)

 photo folder_zps172b8f7f.jpg

Since I recently took a long break from blogging after being called an imperialist gringo pig spreading misinformation about cultures and countries that aren't mine. So it may be a while before I begin posting lengthy pontifications again about whatever records happen to be tickling my earhole on any given week. Let me be perfectly clear that I am not from Trinidad andTobago, Barbados, Brooklyn or the Bronx and can make no pretense of authority on this music.  In fact I only started collecting it a few years back.  I could extrapolate on how I am interested in the ludic, carnivalesque aspects of it from a cross-cultural perspective, its place in the black musical diaspora and Caribbean history and sugar production, it's cutting and off-color humor...

Well this is a new thing for the blog, the first time I have ever hosted a "leaked" track unavailable elsewhere, and hopefully it won't get us shut down after managing to survive this many years.
