Yeah, finally we get a BRC mention!

It's so easy to forget how many "alternative" black music scenes were percolating in the early 1990s... around the time Brown Sugar came out, it was part of the "alt-soul" scene, which was not yet defined exclusively as "neo" or "revival"... there was a lot of alt stuff that was drawing from all over the place before it was decided around 1997 that this 70s-derived sound was the definitive aesthetic for "alternative" black music.
