I was listening to a WVON/Chicago radio aircheck the other day dated April,1970. This one song came on and the best description I can give it is that of a "political conciousness" type of song, obviously popular at that time. It starts out with what sounds like a church choir, followed by a voice sounding very much lile Rev. Jesse Jackson (wouldn't be surprised at all if it WAS him) and he says in a very plaintive voice............"You know, today my friends...so many of us bathin' in luxury, fame and fortune, riches......and yet, some of us have so very little...some of us today, don't even know the ghetto exists in America today. But I don't think there ought to be any ghettoes in America today(long pause-)....not for me...." This song makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up...fantastic song, but the air personality goes right to a commercial--no artist identification..Has anybody ever heard or remember this song?? Who does it?? I would like to try to locate a CD or source for a copy of the 45... Thanks for any info anyone can provide

Call the station....ask for the 'Traffic Department' who does the advertisements, etc...they should be able to tell you.

That sounds like Moody Scott's cut on Mercury
Records called, " Bustin Out Of The Ghetto".

Frankie B. That sounds like "No More Ghettos In America" by Stanley Winston on JEWEL 149 from 1970.

Frankie B. I have the track on the 1982 CHARLY compilation Lp "Stan's Soul Shop" number CRB 1033 it's a U. K. release compiled by Cliff White and Trevor Swaine, with liner notes by Trevor Swaine. I have also seen this in Cd form but I am not sure if it is a legitimate release or a boot. I also agree with the compilers of the Lp "that it is a great example of overlooked and under-rated southern soul".
