The album sounds so ebullient, you almost forget that McDaniels’ message of love comes wrapped around the evils of racism, ethnic conflict and the bomb...
...All the problems McDaniels sings about are still going on

Compared To What


Have one doubt they call it treason

Compared To What


Have one doubt they call it treason

‘Compared To What’ is a classic piece of protest music by any standard: Universally understood and pliable enough to be improvised hundreds of times, more than a quarter century after its original writing it remains fresh, startling, and sadly still relevant. Eugene McDaniels clearly had a vision: Lucky for us, we still have his epic resistance song.
— Denise Sullivan, "Keep on Pushing: Black Power Music From Blues to Hip Hop"

Gene McDaniels


He's Got It In His Soul

 

Even from its inception, his career was destined to rattle the establishment. His first Billboard hits as Gene McDaniels, “A Hundred Pounds of Clay,” and “Tower of Strength,” shot to the Billboard Top 10 on the mainstream pop charts in an era where music by black artists was relegated to “race music.”
