HUMAN RIGHTS (HR) - It's About Luv EP w Keepin' Out Of Reach EP w Viva Azania LP w Singin' In The Heart LP w Charge CD 90 w Out Of Bounds CD 00

REPOST Request:  And a big thanks for that as it is getting me to organize.  Since I usually listen to the first two release on CD (that I bought at the SST store the one time I went there while on a business trip) as I used to have the vinyl between myself and a friend but anyway noticed the comment from d. on quality and so will re-rip with my new method (this is a very old post).  Here is what I wrote before:  Yes, one of my all time favorites and very early influences, I have seen HR and Bad Brains several times and he even invited me into his touring vehicle while he was being interviewed before a show and then gave me a live video disk he had procured from a fan w/o permission to film, that used to be quite popular on my old Youtube site.  He has never done a bad show that I have seen.  He is a very wise Rastafarian and either feeds off good energy present or flings the bullshit right back.  Anybody seen the 'Finding Joseph I" film from last year was it?

Let's see ...

It's About Luv EP w Keepin' Out Of Reach EP

- skipped due to weird format and low bitrate this time. no problem. i can wait.

Viva Azania LP

- oh boy, what a Mischung, what a MERSH product (like Meat Puppets on Monsters). they went for pop formats of the 1980s for no reason at all but their own fancy. or a joke! raw deal was/is THE deal, and always will be. that said, HR's voice is uplifting one way or the other.

Singin' In The Heart LP

- this one is slightly better. marred mostly by title track that could have entered mainstream synth pop charts. kill the synth player, let the sax player live! that said, simple ditty like 'Treat Street' tickles my heart in a pleasurable way & makes my feet wobbly and ready to skank.

I like the next LP - Charge - without reservation.

As always, many thanks!

He wasn't wearing it at HR but at a Bad Brains Halloween show in Malibu that year I lived out there and was prosted that whole year with my old hero bands playing like it was no big deal. Wow, HR last time GAVE ME A DVD of his helmeted show they had just done in a NY club/mansion! He said he had got from a fan and that I could try an make some money from it if I chose (by that time he invited me into the tour car with a hiphop local producer that was going to interview him but I have followed HR since that KOR EP came out and so I helped along the interviewer kid a lot while I shared with Joseph what he called the 'purple' or highest level dro' to my foster parent if you will, the first! Postscript is that i posted that show in NY mansion and it was huge on my old youtube channel. Now meh local supplie is the biggest HR fan and has more than me that he gets at googleplay i guess? Last I have is what is here so share if you like to an old rasta!
