Overview

One glance at So Far, So Good and it becomes evident that this is not merely a collection of a song writer's lyrics. The song-poems of this undisputed "Bluesologist" triumphantly stand on their own, evoking the rhythm and urgency which have distinguished Gil Scott-Heron's 20 year career.

Always, Scott-Heron supports his mission of unveiling America's hypocrisy and inaction with hope for an African American future of self liberation.
