Featuring spoken word philosophy.
Dr. Emanuel H. Bronner is best known for his soap (and its 18-in-1 uses!) but he was also identified as a philosopher, something that will be highlighted in a new compilation of his spoken word recordings.
Sisters & Brothers is a posthumous album by Dr. Bronner (who died in 1997) due this month featuring recordings spread between 1970 and 1995. The 16-track release will be available digitally and in a vinyl pressing of 1,000.
The release will raise money for Jail Guitar Doors, a non-profit partially founded by MC5’s Wayne Kramer to provide prison inmates with instruments and music education.
Look for Sisters & Brothers January 25 via Bandcamp accompanied by a release show at San Francisco’s Music Box Theater featuring many musicians including Kramer, as well as speeches from Bronner’s grandsons (and current company CEO and President) David and Michael. [via Pitchfork]
