Street and Gangland Rhythms
Simply put; this is one of the most amazing and entertaining records I’ve ever heard. It’s a truly fascinating slice of life that does not cease to astonish upon repeated listens, and makes one wish that more things like this had been preserved for the ages. The songs, anecdotes, and a capella gang wars of these children are absolutely brimming over with creativity and inspiration. Totally and unreservedly recommended. Unfortunately, like so many other great Folkways recordings, this has yet to be reissued – and the original vinyl is quite rare and normally demands rather steep prices.
