  1. The song in the ad is NOT the original version sung by Gil Scott Heron. The original was recorded by him in 1971 but the one on the advert is a cover version recorded much more recently.

    • Definitely isn’t the original recording, but not a bad cover. Does anyone know who band is?

  2. Beautiful tune from such an LP. I play this kinda calibre of Soul, Funk and Jazz on my show every Sunday-Go Diggin’ today! …(“, )
