Gil Scott Heron

Small Talk At 125th & Lennox

60s 70s Soul Funk Released in 1971 'Small Talk At 125th and Lenox' was the start of Gil ScottHeron's distinguished fortyyear recording career but this album is his simplest and most hardhitting For the most part it features him with three percussionists performing his poetry The rhythmic backdrop and the style of the delivery makes it more than a spoken word album It is a classic that stands head and shoulders above similar albums of the same date It laid the basis for ScottHeron's emergence as one of the leading figures of the black radical movement Here is the original of 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised' a FM radio hit which prompted the recording of the full band version better known today The album also includes the renowned 'Whitey On The Moon' and the muchsampled 'Brother' Here are Gil ScottHeron's first three recordings as a singer including the beautiful 'Who'll Pay Reparations On My Soul' CD From new 2496 transfers and has never sounded better The original album artwork is presented with its stark Charles Stewart photographs and the booklet contains a new essay on the album by compiler Dean RudlandLP 180 Gram Vinyl with Heavyweight reverse board sleeve
