Before there was rap and hip-hop and poetry slams, there was Gil Scott-Heron and The Last Poets and precious few others: African-American poets, speak-singing a capella or over various forms of music, from African percussion to jazz or funk. "The Bottle" and "Johannesburg" are probably the best examples of Scott-Heron's latter-day work, prominently featuring the jazzy mid-70s grooves of Brian Jackson and the Midnight Band. "The Bottle" may not be as blunt and brutal as Scott-Heron's in-your-face early classics, "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" and "Whitey on the Moon," but it's no less effective for being a bit more subtle and laid-back in assessing alcohol's impact on the community.
