Motown Records is one of the most successful and influential record labels in music history. Between 1961 to 1971, they produced a staggering 110 top 10 hits from artists like Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, the Four Tops, Gladys Knight and the Pips, and Martha Reeves and the Vandellas.  You know these songs, but do you know who played the music on them? Behind all of this amazing music and the Motown Sound was a relatively unknown group of studio musicians called The Funk Brothers who played on every single one of those hits. They're the most successful group of studio musicians ever assembled...and almost no one knows their story.  On this episode of Prisoners of Rock and Roll, we're taking a trip to Hitsville USA to tell the story of this forgotten group of artists. We're going to honor the Funk Brothers, play some tunes, and dive into what they did to make that unforgettable Motown Sound.  Check out our episode playlist. Part of Pantheon Podcasts.

It's October, and  everyone appears to be doing horror movies, so I've gone for something different.  I wanted to create content to do with Black History Month....but I'm a white middle aged guy from Scotland, so while I may not be the best person to talk about Black History, I'm still going to talk about it because it's a vital conversation.I wondered how to get the ball rolling, and lets be honest, who doesn't like music?.  Steve Wonder,  Nina Simone, Gladys Knight & the Pips?  All great performers, great musicians, and all at the 1969 Harlem Culture Festival.  A festival that was filmed, then forgotten about, until this year.I talk a little bit about the politics, the fashion, the music, and how the festival was organised.  I'll admit I don't think I did a great job, I was a bit nervous, but this is a great documentary for any music lover, and deserves to be seen, so put away the chainsaws and horror masks, and enjoy some music for your soul!!If you enjoyed the show please leave a review in Podchaser - it helps us grown and makes us look good.  Otherwise please review us where ever you listen to us.You can also find us in the following places.  Subscribe and join the conversation with our community.TwitterInstagramLetterboxdYouTubeWe hope you have an awesome day wherever you are, and whatever your doing.Andrew, Isla & NieveSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/kwawwpodcast)

Sarah reached out to Richard to do a follow up and they were excitedly planning the follow up. Sadly and unexpectedly, Sarah passed away on Monday, September 20th, 2021 Richard is honoring Sarah's request and as planned, Richard will be joined by some of Sarah's nearest and dearest friends to celebrate a Life well lived! Sarah Dash, the singer and co-founder of the all-female singing group Labelle, best known for their 1974 hit "Lady Marmalade," died Monday at the age of 76. I have decided to honor Sarah's wish and go on and celebrate her as she should be celebrated. As an award-winning vocalist, songwriter, motivational speaker, educator, entrepreneur, and humanitarian, Sarah is a unique force whose voice has touched millions of listeners around the world. From co-founding Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles and making history as a member of Labelle to becoming the very first Music Ambassador (2017) of Trenton, New Jersey, Sarah has blazed a trail in every facet of her remarkable career. Music has been a constant source of inspiration in Sarah's life ever since her childhood in Trenton. The seventh of thirteen children born to Elder Abraham Dash and Mother Elizabeth Dash, Sarah sang in the Trenton Church of Christ Choir as a young girl and entertained her classmates with renditions of standards like "With These Hands." The radio dial introduced her to everything from R&B and rock 'n' roll to country and polka, with the voices of Tina Turner, Gladys Knight, and Smokey Robinson shaping some of Sarah's earliest influences alongside albums by Mahalia Jackson, Nat "King" Cole, Andy Williams, and her brother's jazz collection.

Ward III, pours heart and complex emotion into the fiber of his sound. From the minute you hear the crisp, agile wail of his trumpet, or the playful sincerity of his sax you are frozen, caught in a snare of hope and honesty until he decides he has said his piece. Standing as a major influencer in the development of Baltimore's present jazz sound, Ward's lion heart positions him on the vanguard, reinforcing jazz music as a vital voice for these modern times. In 1996, at 15, Ward began studying flute and saxophone with Baltimore trombonist, bassist, composer, arranger and educator, Charles Funn. Under Funn's mentorship, Clarence Ward III won best soloist awards throughout high school, in the Baltimore City High School Jazz Band Competition and the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore High school Jazz Band Competition. In 2003 and 2004, Ward won a competitive spot on the Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) All Star Big Band representing University of Maryland, Eastern Shore at the Prestigious International Association for Jazz in Education Festival in Canada and New York. It was with the All Star Big Band in 2004 that Clarence Ward III recorded with Jimmy Cobb, live at the Schomburg Center for Black Culture. Over the years, he has performed with artists as diverse as Gladys Knight to N'Dambi Blue to Robert Glasper to Nancy Wilson to Musiq Soulchild to Benny Golson. From 2008 to 2010 Ward collaborated with R&B soul singer Ledisi, performing at Yoshi Jazz Club in Oakland and touring Japan and performing at Billboard Live in Tokyo and Osaka. In 2015/2016 he performed with Aretha Franklin at Caesar's Palace at Caesar's Palace. Remember to subscribe to SOMETHING came from Baltimore! Listen and share with your friends.

Our mission here at the Music Museum is to support all Vietnam Veterans and those who serve the United States, then and now. We thank you for your service. ****** Early-on, in Vietnam, soldiers turned to music as a lifeline to the home front they'd promised to defend. Rock & roll (R&R) really became rest & relaxation (R&R) for the troops. It was this music that got you through another day, another day closer to going home. Music was a big part of a soldier's down time that centered within the hooches of Vietnam. The music that was popular during the Vietnam War was, and is still, therapy. There are songs you can remember, and then there are songs you REALLY remember. Many of these songs will have a special meaning for you. A place, a brother, a time gone by. This program is for you, the Vietnam Vets, who will never forget. ******Our goal with The Vietnam War: The Music is to honor the fallen and the survivors with the music that got them through “just one more day”. Our shows are broadcast around the world. They say thank you & “welcome home” to all Vietnam Vets. There is no opinion offered on the War.

A lot of things happened in 1969, some you may recall, and others not so much. If you're saying to yourself "hey isn't that when Woodstock happened?" then you most certainly are on the right train of thought, you know seeing as this is a music podcast and all. But there was more to 1969 than met the eye, and it had nothing to do with Whitey being on the moon. During the same time, that year when Woodstock was making history and setting the precedence of what we would come to know as the modern-day American-style music festival, something else was unfolding just 100 miles away. A man named Tony Lawrence had a plan in 1967 and after successfully convincing the New York City Parks Department, in 1969 the Harlem Cultural Festival was born. Let me guess, you've never heard of such a thing, and if you have someone probably told you that it likely never happened and was something of an urban legend. Thanks to Questlove, we all now know that this festival that packed nearly 300,000 people into Mount Morris Park (now known as Marcus Garvey Park) in Harlem over a period of six weeks in the summer of 1969 did in fact happen, and man was it a sight to see. This week we're covering "Summer Of Soul" which is Questlove's newest film venture and his directorial debut available exclusively at home on Hulu and in theaters near you. The film focuses on six weeks in the summer of 1969 when people flocked to Mount Morris Park in Harlem to see a myriad of up-and-coming and already famous performers do what they do best—absolutely blow everyone watching, away. This was known as The Harlem Cultural Festival and it was more than just a music festival. It was a celebration of Black history, music, culture, and fashion. It was also used as a vehicle to promote the continued politics of Black Pride. With the blessings of the Mayor, Maxwell House Coffee to sponsor the event, and the Black Panthers to provide security when the NYPD wouldn't—history was made, and now it's available for all to witness. We sat down and watched this film, and so should you. Find out what we thought and so much more on season 4, episode 5 of your favorite documentary filmmaker's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!!

(Listening note: Harry was late, so we start the episode by talking bullshit about Star Wars and some other stuff. Use the timestamps to skip to the good stuff.) CLAUDINE isn't a textbook blaxploitation film, but it leans on those tropes and expectations to subvert them in a really radical way, especially in the context of its 1974 release. The story of a struggling mother on welfare finding love with a hardworking man amid the trials of life under capitalism is given a sharper edge by its script, an honest (if often ugly) window into the realities of being a Black American. Moreover, it's a striking portrait of how those material realities remove opportunity, and what people do to find belonging, value, and worth in each other.

Sista Shree, born Regina French, in the First Nation State of Sequoyah (what is now referred to as Oklahoma— okla humma) is an embodiment of the benevolent magic Earth-Mother figure that we all need in our lives. She is a kind of blue-skinned Krishna who vibrates peace and love and makes all beings in her vicinity feel friendship towards her. For us, we've always felt a kinship with her - an immediate friendship was formed - since we first met twenty years ago. Sista Shree came on the podcast to discuss her new book, an autobiography called SEVA (selfless service) The Memoir of a Modern Day Yogi. This is her epic tale full of love, trysts, incredible encounters with living Saints, and a clear factual account of the racist institutions that make up American life. All of this is interwoven within the context of the Yoga, each chapter of her life accounted for in one of the eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga. She says “Yoga allows us to go into the womb of humanity and the earth and relearn the stuff that we actually came here with.” Speaking about Sri K.Pattabhi Jois she said, “Through his eyes, through his soul, through his smile, he taught us how to awaken the interior self. He was sort of like a guide. He was a guide who gave you wings to fly.” Sista Shree's autobiography is dedicated to Nina Simone. And like her inspiration, this mystic woman is first and foremost a powerful soul singer. She spoke to us of the power of music to heal people, and how it's always been used as a healing and uniting force for the soul. You will feel it. Like all great Guru's of Jazz, Soul, Funk, and all the great musicians like Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, John Coltrane, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Sister Pearl, Sly Stone, Bill Withers, and even newer singer songwriter like Sona Jobarteh… what makes them great is their connection to something beyond the self, “There is a devotion, and energy, and this takes you straight to God.” Learn about the practice of chanting God's name all day long and getting high on life and high on love in this week's episode with Sista Shree.

Ward III, pours heart and complex emotion into the fiber of his sound. From the minute you hear the crisp, agile wail of his trumpet, or the playful sincerity of his sax you are frozen, caught in a snare of hope and honesty until he decides he has said his piece. Standing as a major influencer in the development of Baltimore's present jazz sound, Ward's lion heart positions him on the vanguard, reinforcing jazz music as a vital voice for these modern times. In 1996, at 15, Ward began studying flute and saxophone with Baltimore trombonist, bassist, composer, arranger and educator, Charles Funn. Under Funn's mentorship, Clarence Ward III won best soloist awards throughout high school, in the Baltimore City High School Jazz Band Competition and the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore High school Jazz Band Competition.

Over the years, he has performed with artists as diverse as Gladys Knight to N'Dambi Blue to Robert Glasper to Nancy Wilson to Musiq Soulchild to Benny Golson. From 2008 to 2010 Ward collaborated with R&B soul singer Ledisi, performing at Yoshi Jazz Club in Oakland and touring Japan and performing at Billboard Live in Tokyo and Osaka.

** visit acedoutpodcast.com to see photos and more **2021 is the year that MARSHALL THOMPSON—driving force and choreographer for Chicago hitmakers the CHI-LITES—shimmies from star to superstar status. Specifically, his group has been selected for inclusion among this year's additions to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And it's been a long time coming. Between 1969 and 1974, the Chi-Lites sold millions of copies of their 11 top ten hits, including their eternal crowning achievements, “Have You Seen Her” (from [For God's Sake] Give More Power to the People, 1971) and “Oh Girl” (from A Lonely Man, 1972). The honor of receiving a Hollywood star brings things full circle for Thompson, as Gladys Knight will be performing for the occasion. She's the one who gave Marshall his first big break—on the drums. As a teen, he was always sneaking into the Regal Theatre, only to be tossed out into the snow by the bouncer. But when he found out that Knight would be appearing, he hatched a plan. He rehearsed for weeks in the family basement, mastering the beats to all of her songs. Then he went and got himself some slick threads: cross tie, patent leather shoes, black slacks, and white shirt. When he showed up at the Regal on the big night, he looked like all the other fellas in the house band. So he walked right in with everybody else, the bouncer none the wiser. Now this was big time. The band was at least two dozen pieces, led by none other than Red Saunders! Yet his drummer just couldn't get the feel down. This was Thompson's big chance. “The drummer couldn't play the music,” he recalls “So I raised my hand… ‘Hey Ms. Gladys! Can I play your show?' She said, ‘Come on up here. Showtime is in about 2 hours and this guy's messin up.'” He got the gig and played with her for the week. From there, he got a chance to record with Jackie Wilson, and toured with Major Lance. Despite all this success on the skins, dancing and singing would prove to be Thompson's true calling. He was part of a group called the Desideros with Creadel “Red” Jones. They were frenemies with another clique of singers, the Chanteurs, which included Robert “Squirrel” Lester and songwriter Eugene Record. They would battle all the time. “They could sing real good, and we could dance real good,” Marshall explains. So when both bands broke up, they knew it would be a smart play to join forces. “We went over to their group and I taught them to dance and they had to teach us how to sing like them,” he says. Marshall & the Hi-Lites was born. Throughout the 60s, they pounded the pavement, trying to make it. They recorded singles on local labels, but by the time they got signed to Brunswick, they discovered another band was already using the ‘Hi-Lites' name. So they decided to change it to ‘Chi-Lites' in honor of their homebase. That was the good luck charm, because not long after the 70s rolled in, they scored their first million-selling single, “(For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People.” But “Have You Seen Her” was the real groundbreaker. It was a B-side at first, a tune that the Chi-Lites' band hadn't even bothered to rehearse for live shows. Then one night, when the group was out on the road at a gig, the crowd started screaming and hollering for the song. So they sang it a cappella, over and over again for 15 minutes. After that, they were selling 10k copies per day. The amazing part was the song clocked in at over five minutes, twice as long as the average single in those days. “We didn't think we were gonna get it on the radio,” says Marshall. “It was too long… But the record started selling so much they said ‘Leave it like it is.'” From there, the hits just kept coming. And along the way, Marshall made some amazing contributions to music history outside of the group as well. In this rare gem of an interview, Marshall talks about being managed by Muhammad Ali in the early years, how he started Soul Train with his good friend Don Cornelius, and helping Joe Jackson and the Jackson Five get their start, introducing them to Bobby Taylor. Thompson also raps about being the Chi-Lite's official hairdresser, why engineer Bruce Vadim built a special microphone for each member, and how they developed their dance moves and harmonies.

Ethiopian Atlanta: A Tale of Three Restaurants

The home of Civil Rights leaders like John Lewis and Martin Luther King, Jr., Atlanta has a remarkably storied Black history. It’s birthed the musical careers of legends like Andre 3000, Usher, and Gladys Knight. And recently, it made political history when the state—largely due to Black voters—flipped blue for the first time in nearly 30 years, impacting one of the most consequential elections in modern history. The state’s role in Black culture and identity extends internationally, too. Atlanta has become a popular city of choice for immigrants who’ve arrived in the U.S. In 2018, 1.1 million immigrants made 10 percent of the state’s population. In 2000, nearly 5,500 Ethiopians called Atlanta home. Today, that number has more than doubled, making Atlanta home to one of the country’s largest Ethiopian communities. Immigrants brought their families, their traditions, and their food. The restaurant landscape is just one window into international Atlanta, but it is extremely important. It signals that new communities are working to carve out a space, create opportunity, and share the best parts of their homeplaces with fellow Atlantans. Reporter Kayla Stewart shares the story of Atlanta’s Ethiopian community with visits to three restaurants—Piassa Restaurant and Market, Ledet, and Desta Ethiopian Kitchen. All three places serve traditional Ethiopian food to their customers, and Desta Ethiopian Kitchen has modified their menu in a way that accommodates Ethiopian and American influences. In a classroom, the technique is called global assemblage. In restaurant speak, it’s called hospitality.

(we don't cite it specifically, but Jake also likes George Michael’s “One More Try”), “Easy Lover” by Philip Bailey & Phil Collins, “Dream A Little Dream of Me” by The Mommas & the Poppas, “To Be With You” by Mr. Big, “Bernadette” by the Four Tops and “Blow the Whistle” by Too $hort. Dimples is a San Francisco treasure. If you like karaoke, overpriced drinks, open gambling, a weird sex-work vibe and possibly indoors cigarette-smoking, go there. Ali doesn’t mention the song “Last Resort” by name when she brings up Papa Roach in honor of Beth’s hometown of Stockton, CA. The band is actually from about sixty miles away in Vacaville, CA, but hey what’s the difference really? We mention “Cherry Pie” by Warrant, but not as an acceptable karaoke song. Also, “November Rain” by Guns ‘n’ Roses has way too much instrumentals to be a good karaoke song. Even the radio edit. Phil tells a story about a former student teaching him to mix hot sauce and butter, which is the recipe for buffalo wing sauce (usually made with Frank's Red Hot sauce). When Jake refers to Phil’s mom having a “Bucky Walter” in her home, he’s trying to use Boontling, the local dialect of the small town of Boonville, CA. It looks like he misuses the term, though, as a “Bucky Walter” is specifically a payphone (he should've said “Walter Levi”). “Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90s” is a country song that Phil listens to when he goes to the hardware store. The paint color of the Golden Gate Bridge is neither golden nor red. It’s international orange. Here’s a brief video with some clips of the GG Bridge “singing” (as described in the episode by Jake and Ali). If you’re in Petaluma, CA and have a bagel-hankering, go to The Bagel Mill. The Marble Rye is the king of bagels. It's made by dividing the dough into two piles and mixing cocoa powder into one pile! Strange that it doesn't taste like chocolate. When Jake & Beth inexplicitly exclaim “Cram!” they’re referring to the comedy of Tony Baker. Googling teaches us that goats are, in fact, ungulates. We discuss the use of goats in religion. In Islam it's traditional at the end of Ramadan to slaughter a goat and donate it to the needy. Phil didn't know the word off the top of his head but it's Qurbani and it comes from a story about Abraham. In non-majority Muslim places there's not really a framework for donating and the needy aren't expecting goat meat.  The scapegoat is a different story from Hebrew tradition in which there were two goats and one was sacrificed while the other one was marked up to carry all of the sins and let go into the wilderness. We're not religious but it seems like the scapegoat got off easy (although it does carry the burden of guilt) which is the opposite of how we'd always understood the expression.
