Gil Scott-Heron is justifiably recognised as one of the most unique black music artists of all time. His music transgresses all musical barriers in the same way that Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley and Marvin Gaye did. Along with his song writing partner, MD and co-producer Brian Jackson he recorded some of the most memorable songs of the 1970’s, songs which combined a message with powerful rhythms.

Bridges their 1977 album is one of their best, yet one that is often overlooked. Bridges takes you on a journey it is both lyrically and musically on point throughout and is an album that you can revisit time and time again and be informed, inspired and uplifted by. On this album Brian Jackson plays synthesiser bass, one of the earliest uses of an instrument that was to reshape the sound of soul music in the Eighties. “Racetrack In France” and “Hello Sunday Hello Road” are joyful up tempo tracks reflecting experiences from life on the road. “We Almost Lost Detroit” tells of a near accident at a nuclear power station that had the potential to wipe the motor city off the map. In “Delta Man (Where I’m Coming From)” you can hear the deep emotion in Gil’s voice as he reflects on his ancestry back to the Mississippi cotton fields.

This album is still one of my all time personal favourites and I believe it deserves its place in soul music history as one of the greats. We feel privileged to be able to present Bridges on CD for the first time outside of Japan, with the music being taken from the original master tapes. - Soul Brother
