Indie Exclusive * Critics in the early 1970s called Gil Scott-Heron the most important Black voice since Martin Luther King Jr. and described him as a black Bob Dylan. No wonder that decades later Scott-Heron was celebrated as the ďGodfather of RapĒ. His legacy includes a fantastic concert Gil Scott-Heron gave with his band at the Schauburg Theater in Bremen (Germany) on April 18, 1981. The technicians of Radio Bremen were on site and recorded this ecstatic show. Gil's son Rumal Rackley on the release of this concert: "This album from a 1983 concert captures the spirit that permeated every performance throughout Gil Scott-Heronís travels in the US and abroad. From Europe to Asia to Australia to Africa, his work resonates at the heart and soul level."
