Revolution Begins: Flying Dutchman Masters [Import]
Gil’s first efforts on wax: the three 1970–1972 LPs he made for Flying Dutchman that saw him graduate from poet/novelist to hugely influential recording artist. Small Talk at 125th and Lennox, Pieces of a Man and Free Will contain a large share of the confrontational compositions and funky beats that inspired generations of rappers, and this 3-CD set (whose remastered sound trumps previous reissues) includes alternate takes, un-reissued cuts (including Artificialness with Bernard Purdie) and both spoken-word and band versions of The Revolution Will Not Be Televised; Home Is Where the Hatred Is; Lady Day and John Coltrane; Pieces of a Man; Whitey on the Moon; Free Will, and more! In-depth notes with unpublished pix and interviews with Gil round out this fantastic release! BGP.
