1-2-3-4 : The Snare of Northern Soul

The 1-2-3-4 snare, a musical style developed by Motown – where the snare plays on every beat in the bar, rejected the subtlety of swing and jazz. Direct and unequivocal, it demanded to be heard, reflecting the deeper political aspiration of soul music. Like this driving beat – Afro-Americans were no longer prepared to silent, they were going to be seen and heard.

Dr Martin Luther King’s tragically gave his ‘I’ve Been to the Mountain Top’ speech the day before his assassination on April 4th, 1968. Like all Dr King’s speeches, it is profoundly moving. Mixing it with Patti Joe’s ‘Make me Believe’ is but a tiny tribute to one of the 20th Century most powerful orators.
