A compilation of Gil Scott-Heron’s best-known works for the Flying Dutchman label on CD and LP. Originally released to capitalise on the success of Scott-Heron’s then-current hit The Bottle and his subsequent signing to Arista, this 1974 compilation has since become the definitive distillation of his early work. Contained within the original 11-track selection were the title track, Whitey On The Moon, Home Is Where The Hatred Is plus eight more.
CD - The expanded CD version offers a more rounded view of Scott-Heron’s work with the addition of nine tracks among them When You Are Who You Are, used in a recent television commercial, I Think I’ll Call It Morning and the original spoken-word version of The Revolution Will Not Be Televised. By way of a bonus, edited versions of several of his poems are also included. The CD version includes copious illustrations and an extensive liner note.
LP - Replicating the original 11-track running order and packaged in a heavy duty sleeve, the vinyl reissue features the original LP’s inner gatefold artwork on the inner bag.
