A flawless compilation of Gil Scott-Heron’s early years. Covering his work with jazz producer Bob Thiele, this gatefold reissue shows the wide range of styles and influences he was tackling all the way back to 1970. This is the perfect introduction to Gil Scott’s innovative R&B and spoken poetry with jazz influences. We are treated to number of tracks showing off his singing skills like “Home Is Where the Hatred Is” and “Save the Children”. On other hand we get to experience his spoken word/poetry that laid the groundwork for much of the hip-hop commentary that was to come on tracks like “No Knock” and “Brother”. With songs on here that have been sampled by the likes of Kanye West, KMD and Queen Latifah, Gil Scott’s influence on modern music is still being felt.
