Gil Scott-Heron is rightly considered one of the most influential musicians in the history of black music of the past 40 years. Bob Thiele (Flying Dutchman) enabled him to record his first album in 1970. In 1972 "Pieces Of A Man" followed, on which he oriented himself more towards straightforward, soulful song structures on some tracks and which contains his probably most important songs with "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", "Lady Day And John Coltrane" as well as "Home Is Where The Hatred Is". With the backing musicians Bernard Purdie, Hubert Laws and Ron Carter, this album marked a turning point in socially critical black soul music.
