Cover Smother: Not Televised...It Will Be Live

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Picked this specific picture because this is what a real played record looks like.You can tell just by the cover..bent in corners, wore edges, the somewhat visible record ring imprint...yeah, someone played this copy of Gil Scott-Heron's 1974 album, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised. And they were smart to do so.

Very familiar with this compilation of Scott-Heron's brightest cuts from his first three albums. Sometimes I feel my parents wanted me to be progressive or even militant, because this album as well as others by him were played a lot in my house growing up.

True facts though, Hip-hop, wouldn't exist today if it hadn't been for progressive artists like Gil Scott-Heron, a spoken word and soul artist who always spoke the truth.
