Synopsis

Album Description
Digitally remastered reissue of this 1978 album from the poet/musician, an album that continues the journey started on the 1977 album, Bridges. 'Angel Dust' warns of the dangers of drug abuse. 'Show Bizness' is a hilarious look at the perils of the music business ('they'll take care of everything for only 95%'), whilst 'Madison Avenue' talks of the over commercialization of western society ('buying is all that's asked of you'). 'Better Days Ahead' and 'Prayer For Everybody' see Gil in a more optimistic light hoping for a better future. Nine tracks. Soul Brother Records. 2009.

"Another classic recording by one of the industries finest poets. Gil Scott Heron was rapping and telling it like it is long before hip hop even thought about running its course. This album was a good example of Gil's finest works. A must have!"
