I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun

I hadn't intended to start posting homemade videos but this one was irresistible. It's for "I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun", a song by a Chicago soul-rock group of the 70's called Rotary Connection. The song itself is extraordinary and the visuals capture a era of black pride and optimism that hasn't been matched since...until the last five days.

great track... I've got it on favourites...

btw, I linked to your review of "We Are Jazzmen" - I liked the point you made about Karl Marx, and put it in my review of the film, which I saw at the Russian Film Festival in Sydney.

Cibbuano,

Thanks for the mention. I'm happily surprised that film showed up somewhere else in the world. I saw it at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC and didn't know it was in circulation anywhere else.
