Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #158

October 7, 2015

Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 albums that have shaped me so far. The album this week is Abbey is Blue by Abbey Lincoln.

This weeks album was released in 1959 on Riverside, with various re-releases following. Some may say that Abbey Lincoln didn’t get the distinction her powerful voice deserved, but her socio-politically charged album lives on. An album that encapsulates in it, a real black woman’s struggle in 1950′s America, never devoid of emotion and sentiment.
