"brother eugene b. redmond is the poet laureate of east st. louis. a principal architect of the black cultural arts movement of the 60s, a teacher and acclaimed writer of countless volumes of poetry, redmond has been called 'the preacher of poetic rhythm' by maya angelou, 'a carver of high song magic' by quincy troupe and a worker and healer by ishmael reed. on this spirited, funky, streetwise collection of 12 vintage cuts recorded live in the studio in sacramento in 1973, redmond raps with characteristic braggadocio and bravado accompanied by friends jimmy daniels on guitar, ed jefferson on percussion and ike paggett on sax with the raucous adulations of a roaring in the groove crowd of friends and fans. blood links and sacred places is the first of several forthcoming vintage collections by the poet." - Ikef
