Welcome to the latest installment of the Slow Jams series. The first track that warrants a plug is the cover version of Sam Cooke’s legendary civil rights anthem, “A Change is Gonna Come” from 1967. This track was the marker in
Cooke’s short life that silenced critics who said he had abandoned music with a message in favour of a career in morally devoid crossover pop. Aretha cut this record two years afterSam was shot and the year before Martin Luther King would follow him. The next track is a somewhat unheard treasure as it’s lyrics render it unplayable in most situations. M.Malivers first ever recording entitled “Fuck You and Your Baby Momma Too” was released on a 1 sided white label 12″ from New York in 2006. Its underground success allowed a full release on 7″ 45 but alas it is never gonna be on Radio 1. Oh well…Fuck Radio 1, we will play it on The Downlow Radio.
