GIL SCOTT-HERON Bridges (2009 issue UK 9-track digitally remastered CD album - Gil Scott-Heron is justifiably recognised as one of the most unique black music artists of all time. His music transgresses all musical barriers in the same way that Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley and Marvin Gaye did. Along with his song writing partner, MD and co-producer Brian Jackson, he recorded some of the most memorable songs of the 1970's, songs which combined a message with powerful rhythms. 'Bridges' [1977] is one of their best, yet one that is often overlooked. Both lyrically and musically on point throughout, it is an album that you can revisit time and time again and be informed, inspired and uplifted by. Highlights include the joyful up-tempo numbers 'Racetrack In France' & 'Hello Sunday Hello Road', which reflect experiences from life on the road; 'We Almost Lost Detroit' tells of a near accident at a nuclear power station that had the potential to wipe the motor city off the map; and on 'Delta Man [Where I'm Coming From]', you can hear the deep emotion in Gil's voice as he reflects on his ancestry back to the Mississippi cotton fields)
