The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" is a poem and song by Gil Scott-Heron. Scott-Heron first recorded it for his 1970 album Small Talk at 125th and Lenox, on which he recited the lyrics, accompanied by congas and bongo drums. A re-recorded version, with a full band, was the B-side to Scott-Heron's first single, "Home Is Where the Hatred Is", from his album Pieces of a Man (1971). It was also included on his compilation album, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (1974).

Produced by Bob Thiele. Album Small Talk at 125th and Lenox. Introduction, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (Small Talk at 125th and Lenox Version) Lyrics. The song’s title was originally a popular slogan among the 1960s Black Power and Civil Rights movements in the United States.

LP (12" album, 33 rpm), Import. Gil Scott-Heron Format: Vinyl.

Gil Scott-Heron was a composer, musician, author and poet best known for writing and performing this spoken-word track, which made its way into the cultural lexicon. Regarding the song, he said: "The revolution takes place in your mind. Once you change your mind and decide that there's something wrong that you want to effect that's when the revolution takes place. Gil Scott-Heron wrote this song when he was 21 years old. He would perform and release several reworkings of "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" in his lifetime. The lyrics build a strong, intelligent and humorous case against American consumerism: "The revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal. The revolution will not make you look five pounds thinner. These words remind us that big business owns almost everything we see on television.

Scott-Heron was a high-achieving polymath, so there is plenty to laud: he was a novelist by 20, while his 1970 album of politicised, rhythmic spoken word, Small Talk at 125th and Lenox, preceded rap by a decade. Without his pioneering contributions, Al Nasir believes hip-hop wouldn’t have evolved beyond good-time party music. The Revolution Will Be Live is on 27 August at the Liverpool International Music festival. Pieces of a Man. The Revolution Will Not Be Televised This was originally a spoken-word piece from 1970 and rerecorded with a band in 71. You could draw a straight line all the way from this thrilling piece of invective to Public. Home Is Where the Hatred Is Sampled by Kanye West on My Way Home, this grim depiction of ghetto misery and narcotic misadventures assumed a new resonance in the light of Scott-Heron’s own drug addiction.

Gil Scott-Heron never had a pop hit single; he was more important than that. With ‘Johannesburg’, ‘Home is Where The Hatred Is’ and ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised’ he wrote songs that resonated beyond the world of disposable chart-toppers. That’s not to say he didn’t have success, and 1974 was a very good year for him. The album Winter In America, released on Strata-East, spawned the radio hit ‘The Bottle’ and several cover versions
