R.I.P. Gil Scott-Heron April 1 1949 – May 27 2011


Posted By Soultaker

We lost a great voice on Friday.  Gil Scott Heron name should be mentioned more when talking about the all time greats.  Besides Curtis Mayfield, there is no other soul singer as conscience with his lyrics than Gil Scott Heron.  Rest In Power Mr. Heron.

Take A Listen To His Greatness

1.  Shut ‘Um Down
2.  Superman (Ain’t No Such Thing As)
3.  We Almost Lost Detroit
4.  Angel Dust
5.  Show Bizness
6.   I Think I’ll Call It Morning

  1. Soultaker, you beat me to the punch … thanks for the tribute to Gil Scott Heron. He was one of the few artists who dissected the ills of society right in front of your eyes; his songs were not for sissies with weak stomaches.

  2. Good tribute Soultaker, I just saw this.

  3. Thanks guys, he was truly legendary.
