Because of popular demand — yes, two comments is considered “demand” in these parts — I’m continuing to offer tracks from the never-was-released Grass Roots from Atban Klann (now known as Black Eyed Peas).
This lot offers one of my faves, Mountain Top, and the anti-cop track Lord of the Flies. Again, I’m trying my best to clean up the sound with Audio Hijack Pro, but gimme some feedback — too much bass? too much treble? — and I’ll try to correct it. There’s about seven or eight tracks left, which includes my No. 1 favorite on the album. (Ahem, I’m not above bribery to polish this project off; worth a try anyway.)
Atban Klann | Lord of the Flies
Atban Klann | Quid Pro Quo
Atban Klann | Jugglin’ My Nuts (a little jokey interlude; not sure if that’s actually the name of the song)
Atban Klann | Mountain Top

all right, i’ll buy you a beer.
Hey — THANKS for these Atban Klann tracks. I never knew these guys started out on the (instinctive travels) path of tribe, de la, planets, dream warriors, etc. They coulda/shoulda been a great addition to the waning yrs of the alt & jazz- hip hop “golden age” b/f gansta became completely dominant. On that note, too bad they didn’t hook-up w/ a label like Delicious Vinyl instead of Ruthless. DV might’ev blown them up like Pharcyde. damn.
Anyway, yeah go for the total coversion postage !!
Hey — and thanks much for the shout out on my new template (much needed improvement in my case). Look forward to your new look!! (but your header photo now is great!).
I got the album, and its sick. Had it for a couple of years now, but never thought anyone knew bout em. Your cleanin up the tracks rather well, but i heard BEP might re-release this remastered.. just a rumor tho. The political song is tight tho.. “this land was formed by crooks, so why should i abide by the rules of crooks!” 🙂
Yo, if you want, i can convert my tracks. They are copied from an Original pre-release cd. Might be a bit cleaner than what you got. One of them is a bit fast tho.
Please upload the rest of these! These tape transfers sound pretty good, but I sure would love to get copies ripped from CD. Hint… Hint… Hint…
Ed, if you could upload your tracks, it would be great.
