A ridiculously upbeat track considering the subject matter. Its a cracking almost “Lounge House” or perhaps “Acid Jazz House” sounding tune with one of the most cutting and raw social commentaries from Gil Scott Heron. Not restraining himself to big gov’t but taking shots at all of humanity and for good reason. Strangely, while the track itself may be considered fairly dated, the lyrical content of this track is as relevant today as its always been. Full respect to Gil Scott for that, truly a visionary.
The B side “Deep Club Dub” mix of “Space Shuttle” samples Mr Fingers “Can You Feel It” and is a gem of a track. A political song from Gil and still totally apt regarding global warming. Gil was going on about this years ago and those of use tuned in were well aware of it before the recent media hype. This record is totally undervalued at current market prices and is a gem any House or Funk fan should get a hold of.
