Farewell To The Tribe
On this final episode, we cover the final three albums in your Anthology box, Voices and Rhythms of the Creative Profile, Reflections in the Sea of Nurnen, and Farewell to the Welfare. These final three albums represent a tantalizing theoretical on where Tribe Records might have gone next if they had stayed in operation. They incorporate more funk, more wild electronics, and more songs you could see breaking through at radio, and represent the freedom in form that came with running your own label. The label would close before the final album in this box could be released, but they show clearly that for a label run often on a shoestring budget, Tribe had an impeccable catalog.
