Great work

djc

This is an excellent compilation of Nikki Giovanni's previously released material that was available only on vinyl till recently.. however, if you're looking for the track "Ego Tripping" as I was, I think they have some of the song titles mixed up here so listen to the preview.. it is currently listed as "and yeah.. this is a love poem" as i write this... anyway, the whole CD is great..

They Say All Music Guide

Nikki Giovanni is a distinguished African American writer and poet who released several albums that reflect the turbulent late-’60s social revolution and being an African American feminist. Reissued as part of Collectables’ Black History Series, Poems contains 17 cuts combining spoken word with straight gospel music featuring the New York Community Choir. The gospel material is taken from Giovanni’s album Like a Ripple on a Pond, also available from Collectables. Any of Giovanni’s discs are worth seeking out, including those made specifically for children on Smithsonian/Folkways. – Al Campbell
