I'm almost certain that the Isaac Clark who sings on this record is now the Rev. Isaac Clark who sings lead with the very fine gospel group, The Christian Brothers. I believe he's associated with the Loving Four Baptist Tabernacle up by MLK and Claiborne.
Interesting if true, because Rev. Clark was the man quoted as saying, in a very famous AP story published on Sept. 1, 2005, "We are out here like pure animals. We don't have help." He was at the New Orleans Convention Center at the time along with 15 to 20 thousand other people. The dead bodies were, of course, out front under blankets.
As I recall, it was the day before President Bush did his infamous fly-over of New Orleans....and a few weeks before St. Louis Cathedral could be sufficiently "Disneyfied" with the addition of a huge black backdrop and specially brought-in generators and spotlights so that Bush could finally descend from heaven and make his official speech to the nation while the rest of the city was without electricity, water, food......
For that matter, wasn't that the day when Condoleeza Rice was filmed shopping for very expensive shoes in Atlanta?
Sorry ya'll, I really shouldn't have read the old AP report. I'm angry enough as it is.
While I can't say this makes a great deal of obvious sense, I'd like to dedicate this tune to the recent crop of pandering, self-serving, proto-fascist shit-bags competing for the Republican presidential nomination.
If nothing else, it amuses me to do so.
I'd like to think Rev. Clark would get a good belly laugh as well.
Hope ya'll enjoy........
