About the Author
A highly influential and widely admired singer, proto-rapper, jazz pianist, poet, novelist, and socio-political commentator, Gil Scott-Heron remains a unique and major figure in global music. With more than 20 albums to his name, his politically charged output has won him an international following.
Top Customer Reviews
Profound, caustic and eye-opening, Scott-Heron takes a honest look at his environment and the world around him (at the time, but still very relevant) and it's definitely reflected in the songs and poems contained in this book.
It's great to have the words to some of the poems that were turned into songs like "B Movie," "Whitey On The Moon," "Lady Day and John Coltrane," "Pieces Of A Man," and of course, "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised."
Highly recommend it especially if you're into street poetry or poetry in general. Or if you rather hear the recorded versions of some of the more famous works I suggest: Small Talk at 125th and Lenox and Pieces of a Man.
