Double vinyl LP pressing. From his first well-known album Pieces of a Man (1971, including the iconic ''The Revolution Will Not Be Televised'') to his final album I'm New Here (2010), singer-poet Gil Scott-Heron released more than 20 albums and hundreds of compelling compositions that addressed profound social issues as well as the love, happiness and pain of the human condition - with turns of phrases, humor and a depth of understanding solely his own. Fittingly, because he believed so deeply in humankind's connection to ''spirit,'' he titled his first album in more than a decade, Spirits in 1994. Noting that his life and music were gifts from the ''spirits,'' Gil saw these songs and poems as ''spirituals.'' Offering up poignant social commentary, jazz-funk leanings and an update of 1974's ''The Bottle,'' the long out of print album is reissued here on vinyl 2LP in honor of it's 25th anniversary.
