1 track called “Woman of the ghetto” has been recommended.
Woman of the ghetto  performed by Marlena Shaw  1969
Recommended by ninjos [profile]

Greatest instrument of this song is Marlena's voice and the story it tells about being a mother and getting along in ghetto. I haven't heard any as improvising singer than she is and I know there is not many as versatile as she is and that is the reason You need to get this song. During eight minutes that this song lasts you may find yourself singin' "I'm woman of the gheeetto...", even if you are not and you there may also raise urges to feed a baby. This is a warning.

This song goes to same category as Marvin Gaye´s and Curtis Mayfield´s political material, but what makes this different is that this song does it by the point of view of a woman. And lord that woman is strong one.

from Spice of Life (Cadet)
available on CD - Blue Break Beats Volume Four (Blue Note)
