Best of Gil Scott-Heron

There are at least a dozen Gil Scott-Heron compilations out there, most of them quite decent, though there are one or two that are just plain dodgy. This isn't one of them, however, and is an update of an RCA Bluebird title called The Revolution Will Not Be Televised. 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. The price is certainly right, but there are few liners though actual discographical information is provided. This is a great introductory sampler despite the absence of the late hit "Angel Dust."

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.
