Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson – The Bottle (1974)

Really sad news this morning about the death of Gil Scott-Heron. Will post his most famous song “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” next but wanted to start with this soul/funk classic from the Winter in America LP released in 1974.

A meditation on the perils of alcohol and drug addiction to an incessant groove. Subsequently sampled by De La Soul and The Jungle Brothers amongst others.
