Note From Dada!
Το δισκάκι του Gil Scott Heron που υποσχέθηκα χθες. Ένα από τα πιο πολιτικά άλμπουμ που έχουν γραφτεί, συνδέδεμένο άρρηκτα με τους αγώνες των μαύρων της Αμερικής τη δεκαετία του '70. Επίσης δίσκος ορόσημο των spoken words album και αφετηρία για τα μετέπειτα μουσικά παρακλάδια της rap, της hip hop και άλλων ειδών μουσικής.

About the Album
A New Black Poet - Small Talk at 125th and Lenox, commonly referred to as Small Talk at 125th & Lenox, is the debut album of soul poet Gil Scott-Heron, released in 1970 on Flying Dutchman Records. Recording sessions for the album took place live at a New York nightclub on the corner of 125th Street and Lenox Avenue. By the time of the recordings, Scott-Heron had published a volume of poetry and his first novel, The Vulture.

About Gil Scott Heron
Gil Scott-Heron (born April 1, 1949) is an American poet, musician, and author known primarily for his late 1960s and early 1970s work as a spoken word soul performer and his collaborative work with musician Brian Jackson. His collaborative efforts with Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues and soul music, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. The music of these albums, most notably Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul. Scott-Heron's recording work is often associated with black militant activism and has received much critical acclaim for one of his most well-known compositions "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised". On his influence, a music writer later noted that "Scott-Heron's unique proto-rap style influenced a generation of hip-hop artists".
