      Classic, classic album originally on Strata East and featuring 'The Bottle'.

      Gil Scott Heron is a legendary soul/jazz/spoken word hero and this is one of his greatest and most unique albums. It was the album which made his name and transformed him into a pop success by virtue of the popularity of the track The Bottle, which it includes. A clue to the quality of this classic album is that it was recorded for the seminal indie deep jazz label Strata East, whose releases were rarely short of superb. This is his deepest and most mellow and jazzy album, and is embued with a beautiful sense of peaceful sadness. We really can't recommend this enough! Buy! Buy! Buy!
