RSD 2020 release. Gil Scott-Heron was one of the foremost singer-songwriters of his generation. A committed civil rights activist that also wrote a couple of unusual novels exploring negative elements of the black experience and the punitive societal attitude against black people in the United States, Scott-Heron recorded an exceptional body of work during the 1970s and '80s, and although longstanding issues with drug addiction resulted in repeated bouts of imprisonment and an ultimately shortened lifespan, he continued to produce noteworthy material into the new millennium. Anyone that had the pleasure of seeing Scott-Heron and His Amnesia Express band during the mid-1980s is unlikely to forget it; percussionist Larry McDonald, drummer Rodney Young, saxophonist Ron Holloway, and backing vocalist/keyboardist Kim Jordan provide a full yet uncluttered backdrop to the man and his piano, as evidenced by these stunning excerpts from the summer 1986 tour, with 'Winter In America', 'Johannesburg', 'Blue Collar', and 'Shut 'Em Down' being among the standouts. Licensed by Prestige. 180 gram black vinyl.

STACK WADDY - BUGGER OFF!

'Bugger Off!' picked up where its predecessor left off, and rampaged on from there. Covers of Zappa's 'Willy The Pimp' and The Kinks' 'You Really Got Me' might have seemed a little obvious, but both are battered down with such a glorious lack of finesse that it's impossible ... read more »
