Black Merda anticipates the grim g session of Sly & the Family Stone‘s There’s a Riot Goin’ On, which wouldn’t arrive in stores until a year after this album, and if it isn’t the stark masterpiece that Sly’s album was, it’s good enough that this group deserves to be regarded as much more than a footnote in. the black music scene of the early ’70s.

Black Merda – Black Merda. Label: Chess – LPS 1551, Chess – CH 1551. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album. This album has long been held high as a breakbeat collectors essential item, however it should be noted that the version of Cynthy-Ruth which appears here, differs to that of the single release (also on Chess) which is the version Dante Carfagna used on the Chains and Black Exhaust mix, and in my opinion the superior version of the two.
Black Merda' s sound can certainly be compared to early Funkadelic, and also to late-period Jimi Hendrix. They also had more of a classic soul feel than either of those, plus some surprising elements from acoustic folk rock.
