Revolution Music for the Millennium

The music of Rasheed Ali is critically acclaimed, mind-expanding Black music. Rasheed Ali is a creative artist working for social change. Ali is an international performer, producer and writer with exciting raw talent. 1968 featuring Rasheed Ali is reminiscent of James Brown funk, Curtis Mayfield's evocative lyrics, Normal Whitfield's horns, Sly Stone's quirky cleverness, et al. You can hear EW&F in his background vocals and an early Cameo, a little Frankie Bev and Maze, Marvin Gaye harmonies, and shades of the bands like the Blackbyrds.

"...Rasheed Ali's crusade continues apace...'the Whole World's Watching' (with the tellling chorus, "you can't restrain the will of the people"), 'We Could Change The World', 'You Cant Put Me Down' and 'Black Pride' amongst them..." Bill Buckley, Soul & Jazz & Funk

1968: LSD

"...LSD is mellower and more romantic. 'It's So Good' has all the punch of EWF while 'You Gotta Have Faith' sounds to have taken it's reference point as dear old Curtis Mayfield's 'Move on Up'..." Bill Buckley, Soul & Jazz & Funk

1968: The Other Side of Town

"...Rasheed Ali is all those things, as well as a historian. And with 1968: The Other Side of Town, Ali uses those identities to craft another funky project tht is both timely and timeless. Solidly Recommended" Howard Dukes, Soul Tracks

1968: Soul Power!

"One of the most talked about andd sought after albums at the moment. Rasheed Ali has created a modern masterpiece. The lyrics deal with the racial tension and violence of late 60's America, coupled with some grooves that are about as funky as it gets."The Late Peter Young, Jazz FM London
