Release Date:10/07/2014;Notes:Limited vinyl LP reissue of Gil Scott-Heron's 1972 album. The album is special as one side consists of songs - all but one written with Brian Jackson - and the flipside is of poetry. Both forms showcase the political and the personal, in a way where even the time-specific lyrics transcend their era. Gil and Brian are backed an all-star band consisting of Bernard Purdie, Gerry Jemmott, Hubert Laws and David Spinozza. These help bring out the pathos in the achingly sad 'Did You Hear What They Say' - one of Gil's finest pieces of writing.;Track List:1. Free Will;2. The Middle of the Day;3. The Get Out of the Ghetto Blues;4. Speed Kills;5. Did You Hear What They Said?;6. The King Alfred Plan;7. No Knock;8. Wiggy;9. Ain't No New Thing;10. Billy Green Is Dead;11. Sex Education: Ghetto Style;12. And Then He Wrote Meditations
