The package has been redesigned and the recordings have been completely remastered. This set includes 15 tracks that feature standards such as "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," "The Bottle," "Home Is Where the Hatred Is," and a dozen others.

    Gil Scott-Heron

    This is a old school record, rap before it became the star in music that it is today. This singer has a earthy voice and down to earth and sharp witted lyrics. He tells it like it is and was. I love this album.
