I have this 2-CD live set Tour De Force and it is incredible.These live performances (some of which are very lengthy) are from various shows throughout the years.Makes me wish that I had caught one of his shows back in the day.

"Beginnings (First Minute Of A New Day)"

Mmmmm
We're sliding through
Completely new
Beginnings
We're searching out
Our every doubt
We're winning

We want to be free
Yet we have no idea
Why we are struggling here
Faced with our every fear
Just to survive

We've heard the sound
And come around
To listening
We've touched the vine
Time after time
Insisting

We know what life brings
Still we can find a way
From dues we've got to pay
We hope we'll somehow say
That we're alive

We're sliding through
Completely new
Beginnings

We're searching
Our every doubt
And winning
We want to be free
Yet we have no idea
Why we are struggling here
Faced with our every fear
Just to survive
Completely new [x2]
Beginnings
Completely new [x2]
Beginnings

AS someone who has followed the music scene closely for over 5 decades, I am a bit embarassed that I have yet to explore the music of Gill-Scott Heron. This thread has inspired me. What might be the best album or two to start on?

A Prayer For Everybody / To Be Free

This is a prayer for everybody
In the world
'Cause I need you and you need me
We need each other

This is a prayer for everybody
In the world
A prayer for you
A prayer for me
A prayer for love and harmony
A prayer for light for all to see
A prayer that someday we'll all be free

'Cause...
There's a lot that's wrong
We must be strong
And not become bitter
If there's a chance
That mankind will profit
Why should we scoff at something new
Or old - if it can make us better?

This is a prayer for everybody
In the world
'Cause without you
And without me
Without love and harmony
Without courage and dignity
What would it mean
To be free?
