24-Carat Black - Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth (1973)

Dale Warren- dude who arranged Isaac Hayes' epic Walk on By which is Hood Took Me Under and I Can't Go To Sleep- hood tales and social commentary combined, and then, before them, Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth- hood tales and social commentary from 20yrs earlier, in fact, an expansive soul opera or funk opera or ghetto opera- make it through the slow/moody first half and you'll be rewarded with the incredible second, take no issue with the first half and you've found yourself a classic. Lucky you!
