A reissue of Gil Scott-Heron's 1972 album taken from the original master tapes. The album is special as one side consists of songs - all but one written with Brian Jackson - and the flipside is of poetry. Both forms showcase the political and the personal, in a way where even the time-specific lyrics transcend their era. Gil and Brian are backed an all-star band consisting of Bernard Purdie, Gerry Jemmott, Hubert Laws and David Spinozza. These help bring out the pathos in the achingly sad 'Did You Hear What They Say' - one of Gil's finest pieces of writing. Gil's final album for Flying Dutchman, it capped a hugely creative period for him when he wrote many of his best-remembered songs.
