I took a chance and became a fan of Soul/Rock star Martin Luther back in late 04 when he dropped his album Rebel Soul Music. Circuit City had it for like 6 or 7 dollars at the time, so it wasn't a huge loss had I not liked it. Needless to say, the album captivated me with it's eclectic fusion of soul, rock and funk and embodied in those musical vibes were his views on love, politics, social commentary and his hometown, San Francisco, California. Since then, Martin has toured the world, released a live album, Live at Arlene's Grocery, performed on The Monique Show and has been working on his long awaited Love is The Hero album. To hold us over, Martin has released a collection of songs (16) he'd been sitting on from God knows when and from what I've listened to thus far, it's another solid work that needs to be heard. Featuring songs with 2Pac, George Clinton and Stic Man of Dead Prez, if you've never heard of Martin Luther, do as I did and take a chance. Listen and see what an incredible artist you've been missing out on.
