Gil Scott-Heron - Pieces of a Man (AAA 2LP Vinyl)

Gil Scott-Heron's "Pieces Of A Man" is one of the most important albums in the history of black American music. It was a landmark album with it's bold, poetic lyrical content allied to progressive and melodic music, and it saw producer Bob Thiele help Gil and his musical partner Brian Jackson paint the picture they needed to get their message across. Thiele put Gil and Brian together with Ron Carter, Hubert Laws and Bernard Purdie, giving them the musical heft they wanted.

To make this special 2LP edition, the original master tape was taken to Frank Merritt at The Carvery in London, who cut it as a double disc 2 x 45 RPM record, in an all-analogue chain. The original record - especially side two - was long, and serving it up this way allowed the music a greater level of fidelity. The release is packaged in the original album's gatefold sleeve.
