1980 was the last album that Gil Scott Heron recorded with his musical collaborator Brian Jackson.
Originally released in 1980 on Arista the album includes the popular single ‘Shut Em Down’ and is both lyrically and musically on point throughout.  The album reflects on the turning of that decade and 30 years on many of the messages are still relevant to today’s society.

This is the first time the album has been available on CD except for a very rare Japanese release 15 years that  now changes hands for high prices on auction sites. 

The album has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and sounds incredibly fresh.
Brian Jackson has written some new sleeve notes especially for this CD issue, which give an interesting insight into the recording of the album..

This is the third Gil Scott Heron and Brian Jackson album in our series following Bridges and Secrets released earlier this year.

Gil Scott Heron’s music crosses  musical boundaries and appeals to a wide range of music fans. - Soul Brother
