The Talented Tenth
Clocking in at 12 minutes and 13 seconds, the five song extended player The Talented Tenth articulates a wide range of emotion. From the sober minor key narrative of "Track Four" to the lighthearted cross cultural bounce of Miss Ann.
Short and to the point only "Track Four" exceeds the 3 minute mark, if only by a hair, ticking in at a whopping 3 minutes and 12 seconds. "That wasn't by design," explains The Numberman. "It just happened that way. Once you've said what's on your mind that's it. You're done."
