Um Down," and "B Movie" (one of Scott-Heron's angry attacks on President Ronald Reagan). Even if you don't agree with all of Scott-Heron's politics, he was always thought-provoking and was certainly an expressive, captivating R&B singer - it's too bad he ended up spending the second half of the 1980s without any type of label deal. For those who wanted an introductory overview of Scott-Heron's Arista output, this LP was, in the mid-'80s, a logical choice.

Reviews about Gil Scott-Heron - Shut 'Um Down / Baltimore (1):
Great single from Gil & Brian. No nonsense lyrics about the 3 Mile Island nuke meltdown with head swinging horns, a jubilant female chorus and Gil's baritone charing your ears like smoked cherry oak. This version is actually a different recording than which appeared on the LP. (This single version has a slower tempo.) This was later issued on the hits CD "Glory".The b-side "Baltimore" is a nostalgic and melancholy synthesizer tune about Christmas. This was one of the few non-album tracks they ever released on a single and the only original song (meaning not a different mix, recording or live version). However, this same recording was released as "Spirits Past" on Gil's 1994 CD "Spirits".
