Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson

Producer, composer, and musician Brian Jackson collaborated with Gil Scott-Heron on several influential and popular '70s releases. The two met at Lincoln University, and later teamed on such songs as "The Bottle," "H20 Gate Blues," and "Johannesburg," which was their most successful commercial single. Jackson later did keyboard sessions with Earth, Wind and Fire and Stevie Wonder, and produced dates for Will Downing, Gwen Guthrie, High C, Sefus, and Aja. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

So smooth and so true about NYC
Hoping for some rain...
Pandora need to buy the rights to all of this man's discography?
One of the most influential poet, civil rights founders, musician, and spokesman in the 20th and 21st century. His poetry was real, raw and spot on. He is the original rapper IMO.

Same with me - I covered on of his most amazing songs. So powerful, such an inspiration. https://soun d c l o u d . c o m / u n e m p l o y a b l e / s u p e r w o m a n - a i n t - n o - s u c h - t h i n g
Gil's music has been my inspiration since Pieces of A Man back in 1971. He is my most quoted philosopher.
When this man spoke or sung nothing else was important.

Gil Scott is the definitely the truth
"I take pride in what's mine is that really a crime when you know I ain't got nothin else".
Thanks to GSH from the first time I heard that my mantra was born
Gil Scott Heron was a genius, absolutely brilliant. He had authored a his first volume of poetry by 13 and was lauded for his novel titled 'The Vulture. by the time he was 21. He was actually teaching at a university when he began his musical career. His original sound and powerful realistic lyrics remain some of the most profound in yo'face lyrical poetry put to music.

Back in 1974 my freshman year in college I was turned on to Gil Scott-Heron by one of my teammates. Gil's music was a mind opener for a 17 year old kid in the south playing football at an all white school. I still love to listen to Gil's thought provoking music and We almost lost Detroit is one of my favorite songs. Favorite album - Secrets, RIP Gil Scott-Heron.

I've been listening to Gil Scott since 1974 and now I feel like a big brother just got taken away from me. When he was gone before I missed his voice, his intelligence , that incisive wit that cut straight to the bone. Now that he's not coming back it makes me more committed to speak and write and live that progressive vision that was at the heart of his work. Gil Scott Heron will always live in my heart and soul. Thank you Gil. I miss you.
Being a teenager in the Detroit area this was life music.
He spoke what we needed to hear, no frills. He spoke to all of us. He is moving on "UP"now. I pray that all of us will move on and eventually "UP".
CELEBRATE HIM/CELEBRAT E OURSELVES!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Hey Pandora, How about including the album "1980" in this list? Thanx
i got tickets to see him for my parents a year or so ago and they loved the show here in ny
The last time that I saw Gil Scott-Heron was several years ago at Kimball's East in Emeryville, CA. Utterly INCREDIBLE! He will always stand the test of time. My all time favorite artist.
