Roughly speaking, wot % of yer collectro is schwartzer, Jimmeh?

Also, do you - bastard - sort your records/cds BY RACE?

Blind Chile collects prog, psych,hardrock, UK/Brittany folk and electronic.

Black brothers are conspicuously absent from these genres.

Oh yeah - I also gots lotta fusion - and there are plenty top black performers there. (Im thinking Cobham, Stanley Clarke,David Sancious .)
Of course black musicians are flagrantly prominent in straight jazz - and I don't care for that music.

I DO like some black ORGANISTS but the trouble here is that with peeps loike mcGriff,McDuff ,Holmes and especially Jimmy Smith, the lps are embarrassingly patchy with them doing old Geritol nuggets. (The only straight good Smith lp is "Rootdown". Its free of that Lawrence Welk music. Trouble is that its one of the most difficult to find. Also, the closest Smith came to prog was the Virginia Wolfe lp with orchestra.)

Psych and especially Prog is the clear STAY AWAY ZONE for blacks.

Off the bat, I can only think of a few for psych - New Dawn, Witchbones... (I dont rate Chambers Brothers as psych) and even less for prog.

I have maybe 6 Osibisa lps in my collectro, the Frankie Dymon proggish lp, and one I really like - Rochester Veasley Band. I will try put up a piccy of the latter.

How about Funkadelic's Maggot Brain? The title track is definitely pretty psych.

I refuse to only think about ordering my collection by so called races. "Race" in the sense of human diversity is a term that came up during colonization to up-and digrading people and so justify a lot of exploitation, torture and unequality. In this country here, that had a few colonies, too, they put that measurements on human beings into a state of a science, and we could see, where that ended. If there are differences in music made by people belonging to this or that color it's a thing of socialization and tradition and not of the color. Look at Damo Suzuki: Born in Japan, socialized in Germany: KRAUTROCK!

Oh look, a really easy question. 100%.
Even if the music isn’t actually played by black/brown/Yellow or whatever it all came from black people.
Jazz, Blues, made rock and roll and every other genre that is likely to fall under the banner of prog.
White boys, they don’t have soul and can’t keep a rhythm.
