Released in 1971 'Small Talk At 125th & Lenox' was the start of Gil Scott-Heron's distinguished forty-year recording career but this album is his simplest and most hard-hitting. For the most part it features him with three percussionists performing his poetry. The rhythmic backdrop and the style of the delivery makes it more than a spoken word album.

Released in 1971 'Small Talk At 125th & Lenox' was the start of Gil Scott-Heron's distinguished forty-year recording career but this album is his simplest and most hard-hitting. For the most part it features him with three percussionists performing his poetry. The rhythmic backdrop and the style of the delivery makes it more than a spoken word album.

It is a classic that stands head and shoulders above similar albums of the same date. It laid the basis for Scott-Heron's emergence as one of the leading figures of the black radical movement. Here is the original of "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" a FM radio hit which prompted the recording of the full band version better known today. The album also includes the renowned "Whitey On The Moon" and the much-sampled "Brother." Here are Gil Scott-Heron's first three recordings as a singer, including the beautiful "Who'll Pay Reparations On My Soul."

His debut album is reissued on CD from new 24-96 transfers and has never sounded better. The original album artwork is presented with its stark Charles Stewart photographs and the booklet contains a new essay on the album by compiler Dean Rudland.
