Stunning 1972 Original Housed In The Rare Laminated, Heavy-Duty Gatefold Jacket. “Gil Scott-Heron's Third Album Is Split Down The Middle, The First Side Being A Purely Musical Experience With A Full Band (Including Flutist Hubert Laws And Drummer Pretty Purdie), The Second Functioning More As A Live Rap Session With Collaborator Brian Jackson On Flute And A Few Friends On Percussion. For Side One, Although He's Overly Tentative On The Ballad "The Middle Of Your Day," Scott-Heron Excels On The Title Track And The Third Song, "The Get Out Of The Ghetto Blues," One Of His Best, Best-Known Performances. The Second Side Is More Of An Impromptu Performance, With Scott-Heron Often Explaining His Tracks By Way Of Introduction ("No Knock" Referred To A New Police Policy Whereby Knocking Was No Longer Required Before Entering A House, "And Then He Wrote Meditations" Being Scott-Heron's Tribute To John Coltrane). His First Exploration Of Pure Music-Making, Free Will Functions As One Of Scott-Heron's Most Visceral Performance, Displaying A Maturing Artist Who Still Draws On The Raw Feeling Of His Youth.” John Bush, All Music Guide.
