I met Guru that night, not for the first time…but one of the few times I did. I was recording footage which I have in the archives somewhere…


Excerpt fromĀ NY TIMES:

* COMMON, GANG STARR, TALIB KWELI, FLOETRY, Roseland Ballroom, 239 West 52nd Street, Manhattan, (212) 777-6800. Common’s most recent album, ”Electric Circus” (MCA), was hit and miss; it’s now clear that he should leave the singing to the singers. But live, he remains one of hip-hop’s most exciting performers, leading his band through long, loping phrases while hardly pausing for breath. He is to be joined by the traditionalist duo Gang Starr, the long-winded Talib Kweli and the sing-rapping act Floetry; it should be a great show. Sunday at 6:45
