Review

Originally recorded, self-published and released in 1985 by a school teacher in Miami for educational purposes, copies of 'Do You Know Black History' did not circulate much further than Florida's public school libraries and the record has been shrouded in mystery up until now, thanks to this official reissue from Backatcha Records. Dr Mary Sullivan Bain recorded the song to be used as motivational tool in the Miami-Dade public school system she taught in. Produced with no label constraints, this cross-genre grail sits comfortably in many boxes with a cosmic blend of 808's, bass synths, deep chords, live percussion and effects dubbed into the mix. The production leans towards the electronic diy framework that became central to the local sound of south side Miami. Whilst the categories are blurred, what's clear is that Bain was thinking outside of the box, both musically and educationally.
