A heavy collection of work from the legendary Flying Dutchman years of Gil Scott-Heron – arguably some of the most hard-hitting music that Gil ever recorded! The tunes here are a mix of spoken word tracks, with rhythms – and other tunes that have a bit more of a song-based approach – the soulful use of jazz vocals that Scott-Heron would move into more strongly in his Arista years. Gil's work at this point in his career is dead on the money – totally righteous, filled with soul, and coming across with a power that still holds up beautifully these many decades later. Titles include "Whitey On The Moon", "Free Will", "Evolution", "The Vulture", "Small Talk At 125th & Lenox", "Get Out Of The Ghetto Blues", "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", "Home Is Where The Hatred Is", "Enough", "No Knock", "Who'll Pay Reparations On My Soul", and "Billy Green Is Dead".
