Legendary album by vocalist-songwriter-producer-drummer Linda Tillery who had previously paid her dues on the San Francisco 60s rock scene, then on an Al Kooper-produced solo debut as “Sweet Linda Divine,” and also as a respected session singer. This is probably her crowning achievement on wax, though, as well as being the standout release on women’s-music label Olivia Records (swipe left for more info). What makes this and several other Olivia releases stand out is the way they’re steeped in jazz-funk whereas most of the label’s output was in firm Joan Baez/Judy Collins territory. Mary Watkins, one of the players and co-writers here, has another excellent jazz-funky album on this label as well. “Freedom Time” is the best-known track here but there’s a lot more to recommend the album than just that! #lindatillery #oliviarecords #1977 #freedomtime #heavenisinyourmind #womensmusic
Day 278. Linda Tillery. Vocalist. Drummer. Song Leader.

🎼No more praying No more crying Look around us People are starving and dying Time for living If you're willing It's Freedom Time - yeah We've been given Empty answers The pain of oppression Grows inside like a cancer... "Freedom Time" by Linda Tillery from the 1977 self titled album 'Linda Tillery' on #OliviaRecords . Co-written by #LindaTillery and #MaryWatkins . Featured in the compilation "A Good Example Of What It Is". The lyrics are so relevant and timely today as they were in 1977. Speaking out against social injustices. The song also brings attention to the problems of being black and female and gay with the lyrics: "If I could just tell you what it's really like / To live this life of triple jeopardy / I fight the daily battles of all my people / Just to sacrifice my pride and deny my strength". This song has been cited as influential in scholarly studies of black feminism and in feminist journals. In a 1978 review Linda Tillery described her album as "characteristically #jazz /#rock #fusion with her clean, funky drumming and excellent interplay between bass, drums, and keyboards.Through much of the 1970's Tillery worked as a session musician providing backing vocals and occasionally playing drums on albums by #Santana , #BozScaggs , #LennyWhite , #TeresaTrull and others. #Iconic #Legend #Prolific #apropos #producer #musician

Thank you to @bonnieraittofficial for sharing a photo of this terrific foursome from @freightandsalvage ’s 50th anniversary celebration. #Repost @bonnieraittofficial with @get_repost ・・・ Wonderful to share such a special benefit, celebrating 50 years of Berkeley’s historic @freightandsalvage with a concert featuring our beloved @mavisstaples and her incredible band. They’ve never been better and Maria Muldaur and I were so honored to join them onstage for “Will The Circle Be Unbroken.” Here we are backstage with another hero, great singer/activist Barbara Dane.

This #WomenWhoRockWednesday we honor the magnificent Linda Tillery. Musician, activist, ethnomusicologist, and all around badass, Linda is a pioneer in Women’s Music. She came to prominence as the lead singer of The Loading Zone, performed as a vocalist with bands ranging from Santana to Bobby McFerrin to Huey Lewis and the News, and upon delving into her study of the music of slaves and the African diaspora, formed the remarkable Cultural Heritage Choir. Tillery was a member and later president of the Olivia collective, which became "the pioneering label run by the lesbian-feminist collective that made a place for female musicians, engineers, and producers". She was one of, if not the first, artist to openly challenge homophobia in her music, and has written about the challenges of the Black/Female/Gay experience. Her music is powerful, whether gospel, R&B, pop, jazz, soul, or folk! ⠀ Linda has given so much to so many communities and is currently having some health challenges. Her community has set up an account for donations to her medical expenses. Please give what you can!

March 1968 the first time I saw Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and GingerBaker. The second act was Big Black who was ill and the two sets that Cream and the Loading Zone performed were lights out and extra long! That was pretty cool growing up in the Bay Area. #billgrahampresents #fillmore #sanfrancisco #loadingzone #lindatillery #eightpmtotwoam #threedollars #fiftyyearsago #longliverockandroll @ben_cordova_music @peter_green_page @bluestreak350 @_bluesbreaker @blindowl_ @krystle_bluepersuasion @psychedelic_aesthetic @gregwavintage @lowellgalliani @kenluvsrocknroll @herlifewassavedbyrocknroll #containerjunk @tasteblues @take_honey @julianna_avni_art @junpei_1991 @hovig_guitar_
