John Sinclair Radio Show 735: Freedom Now

Episode 735 marks the annual celebration of the day I was released from Jackson Prison on December 13, 1971 following the John Sinclair Freedom Rally at Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor on December 10. I’m still recovering from some physical setbacks here in my studio in the Cass Corridor of Detroit and, as always, looking back on my release from 29 months in prison as the happiest day of my life so far and cherishing the 46 years I’ve spent in relative freedom since—at least free enough to create the things I want to make. But for my music this time I’m going back just over a year to my 75th birthday party at a beautiful country estate outside of Ann Arbor where a lot of people and some very fine musicians got together under a big tent and made some music together: Bettye LaVette, Scott Morgan, Laith al-Saadi, Ms. Samantha Fish, Mr. Larry McCray, and my band, John Sinclair & His Blues Scholars. This was a great celebration for me and I’d like to relive it with you today.
