The Original Last Poets – Right On! (Original Soundtrack)


The soundtrack to Right On!, the documentary from 1971 that followed a day in the life of NYC’s original Last Poets; Felipe Luciano, Gylan Kain, and David Nelson. This group of New York City Black and Latino poets/musicians were active in the late 1960’s African American Civil Rights Movement. As can be expected, you get some interesting and thought-provoking performance poetry alongside the sparse beats of the conga drum.
Apparently, a lot of the poetry performed for the camera was lost because of faulty sound equipment. The liner notes on this LP read “All poems recorded at The Cubicolo Theatre, New York City except Soul which is from the movie soundtrack.”
