Gil Scott-Heron – Peace Go With You, Brother (As Salaam-Alaikum) (Strata-East)

42 years have gone since the release of The ‘Winter In America’ album which, although quite overlooked back then, stands as one of – if not the – greatest works of singer Gil-Scott-Heron and keyboardist/flutist Brian Jackson together. An album which marked their debut on Strata-East after their dispute with Flying Dutchman, featuring the famous ‘The Bottle’, but also ‘Peace Go With You, Brother’ as its opening cut. A song that saw Scott-Heron heavily criticizing the selfishness of people for forgetting their common humanity, singing with his characteristic baritone style over a dreamy and moody soundscape produced by Jackson. A timeless masterpice which got released for the very first time as a CD 24 years after on Scott-Heron‘s Rumal-Gia Records label.
