Gil Scott-Heron Albums!

Gil Scott-Heron (born April 1, 1949) is an American  poet, musician, and author  known primarily for his late 1970s and early 1980s work as a spoken word soul performer and his collaborative work with musician Brian Jackson. His collaborative efforts with Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues and soul music, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. The music of these albums, most notably Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul. Scott-Heron’s recording work is often associated with black militant activism and has received much critical acclaim for one of his most well-known compositions “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”. On his influence, Allmusic  wrote “Scott-Heron’s unique proto-rap style influenced a generation of hip-hop artists”.

  10. johnny c. says:

    Gil Scot saved my sanity and spirit as a young man growing up outside of Los Angeles in the early ’70′s. Gil, I’ve had the pleasure of listening to you on many occasions (first time live @ the Hollywood bowl ’75 w/ Weather Report and Earth, Wind, and Fire). Thank you from the deepest part of my spirit.

    Question: where can I find the version of “Revolution” in which Gil opens by saying that the revolution will be internal-within us? Help. I can’t find it. Send me an email: johnny.coleman@oberlin.edu

    Wow!  That was my reaction when I heard the news of Gil Scott’s passing. The world is a sadder place.  He was a great writer, poetic artist, visionary, intelligent man. He will be greatly missed but we will have his music forever. God Bless Him. “My thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.”

    “THE RE-RON” GIL YOU WERE SO DAMN PROLIFIC AS A LINGUIST

  23. iMac says:

    thanks… you rock! :)

  24. Kay-Pee says:

    I feel like the Geico guy living under a rock. Here it is going on almost a month later and I’m just finding out that brother Gil is no longer amongst us in the physical. I never saw anything in the news local or otherwise. Just another way to show how certain outspoken revolutionaries were and are still being downplayed by those outside of the influenced listening realm.
    God bless your family. And just understand that to whom much is given, much is required. And brother Gil had a lot on his shoulders that the average person will probably never understand for they didn’t walk in his shoes. From ” Small Talk @ 125th & Lenox” to Deep dialogue on Pearly Gate Ave. Rest in peace brother Gil.

  25. FARAH says:

    MERCI MERCI POUR CETTE CETTE PRESTIGIEUSE DISCO…

  26. Den NC USA says:

    Living proof that one man, one artist, can make art and make a difference in millions of minds, and still be lost and forgotten, and remembered, and left and still taken to the bank, but that bank is not the white-man of greenbacks, but the river bank of wetbacks.
    We are the revolution, and the revolution will not be televised, it will be lived, and it will be live, and it will be now, and it will be in the future, because the revolution is both going around and coming around, as the earth itself does, and we do, and that is the revolution of life. Life has “lie” and “if” in it, but don’t “lie” down.
