Roberta Flack, the Last Poets and Leon Thomas: New Breed Comin' Up
uncredited writer, Hit Parader, July 1971
There's a new, young breed of black singers coming up — a breed that is aware of the roots but doesn't get into the funky-jive-fingerpop-boogaloo bag.
Singers that reflect what's happening around without the mysticism that can afflict others.
Like Leon Thomas, Roberta Flack. And even the Last Poets.
