Rare Folkways oddity from 1959 repressed!

"Originally released in 1959, this is the recording of 6 pre-teens from Harlem on bongos, homemade percussion instruments, and vocals. Pounding rhythms and chants convey the emotions and experiences of life in New York City's housing projects and tenements. Heralded after the fact as an early precursor to rap music, Street and Gangland Rhythms is an important document of post-WWII urban black America. An amazing record lovingly reissued in a perfect replica of the original Folkways jacket and including a reproduction of the original information booklet."
