"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of confort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy".

- Martin Luther King Jr.

Marc Mac drops yet another gem as a very limited LP that highlights America's civil rights issues and the struggles of the people of the deep south. Much in the same vein as his Chess compilation with a strong hip hop and soul influence. There are many samples of speeches and news reports from the era highlighted interwoven with heavy beats and lush samples. His use of Marvin Gaye's vocals at one point are a real highlight.  LTD. 300 Worldwide. Grey Smoke vinyl.
