Maya Angelou fly away home to Zion. This video DJ combination was recorded live at The Kennel Club in San Francisco January 24th 1993 and features “On The Pulse Of Morning” written and spoken by Maya at the Bill Clinton Presidential Inauguration Ceremony January 20th, 1994 with dub bammin’ Linton Kwesi Johnson and Dennis Bovell’s Dub Band mix up by Ghost Town Sound’s Duppy Doug Wendt. This particular piece went over so well it was replayed many more times at the always jam packed Sunday night venue. Infinite thanks also to Archie Bell’s Dancers, Jerry Abrams’ Head Lights Show crew with Phyllis Laurie et al, Stefan Gosieski’s Video Dub FX and the thousands who danced their hearts out at the Divisadero Street Fillmore District nightclub currently known as The Independent.
“Lift up your eyes upon
This day breaking for you.
Give birth again
To the dream.”
