Review - Time Has Come - Revelations of a Mississippi Hippie

Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on September 24, 2022

 
This collaboration of Lester Chambers and esteemed music journalist T Watts is a fabulous read. The book spans musical eras, starting with an intimate description of the brutality and exploitation of Mississippi sharecropper life and the profound importance of music and song to African Americans in the deep south. From blues to gospel and the emergent genres that have defined much of the nation's - and world's - popular music in the years since. I am listening right now to the familiar tunes of the Chambers Brothers, marveling how these very vulnerable and often struggling humans formed their imprint on so many of us. The LA/ SF/ Berkeley stories are marvelous. How Owsley gave Lester two Mason jars full of LSD, inspiring him to microdose daily for several years. And finally to his recent collaborations with venture capitalist Roger McNamee and his Moonalice band. It's a good read and a reminder that we as Americans need to continually remind ourselves of both the roots of the music we love and the rapacious history of the music industry. Buy this book.

Description

Gospel Rock legend Lester Chambers, who’s path crossed with several of the most influential artists of all time such as Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, was one of the defining voices and aesthetics of the 1960s. In the early 1950s, Lester and his brothers escaped their duties as sharecroppers in Lee County, Mississippi, for California, where they began performing together as a gospel group. Together with The Chambers Brothers, Lester pioneered a psychedelic, soulful, blues rock sound that still influences musicians nearly six decades later. Thus, I was excited to hear what he had to say on Do You Believe in Rock and Roll, a record released a little over a decade ago.

The record was produced by both Lester and producer Pride Hutchison (Steve Pryor, Dick Sims), and engineered by several familiar Explosive Records players, including Michael Dumas, at Horse Latitude Studios (Robbie Krieger), Dale Lawton (Chick Corea), and more. Together, they create a blues rock atmosphere that sounds timeless, even in 2020. In addition, Do You Believe in Rock and Roll was one the last albums recorded at the legendary Radio Recorders studio prior to its 2008 farewell; a studio featuring recordings from artists such as Elvis Presley, Jimi...  more
