A compilation of Gil Scott-Heron's best-known works for the Flying Dutchman label. Originally released to capitalize on the success of Scott-Heron's then-current hit 'The Bottle' and his subsequent signing to Arista (which also occasioned Gil leaving his teaching job at DC's Federal City College and fiction-writing pursuits to become a full time touring musician), this 1974 compilation has since become the definitive distillation of his early work. 

Contained within the original 11-track selection were the title track, 'Whitey On The Moon', 'Home Is Where The Hatred Is' plus eight more, from the spoken-word proto-rap of "Brother" to the cool blue jazz of "Pieces Of A Man" and "Did You Hear What They Said".
