Strut presents one of the most in-demand and significant albums from the archives of Jimmy Gray’s Black Fire Records, Bow To The People (1976) by theatre collective Theatre West, based out of Dayton, Ohio.

Recorded at Arrest studios in Washington in ’76, ‘Bow To The People’ brought together songs from several of Theatre West’s best known plays including Bow To The People, The System and Black Love and unflinchingly explored serious issues around drug addiction, mental health and cultural awareness. “The whole idea of Bow To The People was to honour our black forefathers,” explains bassist Sigmond Dillard. “It was important to do that for the kids that didn’t know.”
