Gil Scott-Heron – “Alien (Hold On To Your Dreams)” (Previously Unheard Recording)

 

So raw.

 

The splintered, graveled voice of the legendary Gil Scott-Heron resurfaces as part of a new compilation of the late New York musician’s previously unheard recordings entitled Nothing New.

Only Gil’s piano and voice are present on all tracks. No overdubs were used.

 

 

All were captured while recording what was to be his final studio album, I’m New Here.
