East Village Loft Society – I Wanna Sing Sunshine

Superb 1993 release from Ashley Beedle project the ‘East Village Loft Society’ featuring a sample from the moving poem ‘On the Pulse of Morning’ of Maya Angelou. Beedle showing his productions carry a wider set of influences than many of his contemporaries, a feature he shows on his new 2013 release as Bedford Falls Players on Moodmusic with ‘the Ballad of Hardrock‘, which features the classic American poem; ‘Hard Rock Returns to Prison from the Hospital for the Criminally Insane’ by Etheridge Knight.

‘He had been our Destroyer, the doer of things We dreamed of doing but could not bring ourselves to do, The fears of years, like a biting whip, Had cut deep bloody grooves Across our backs.’
