The soundtrack to Right On!, the documentary from 1971 that followed a day in the life of The Last Poets - the group of New York City black poets/musicians that were born from the late 1960s African American civil rights movement. As can be expected, you get some interesting and thought-provoking performance poetry alongside the sparse beats of the conga drum. 
Apparently, a lot of the poetry performed for the camera was lost because of faulty sound equipment. The liner notes on this LP read "All poems recorded at The Cubicolo Theatre, New York City except Soul which is from the movie soundtrack."
