Cover Me (The Bottle)

"Don't you think it's a crime the way time after time, people hit the bottle?". Gil Scott Heron first echoed these words on his 1973 album Winter in America. "The Bottle", even with its strong inner city social message, and possibly a touch autobiographical, is still a damn funky track.

I have two covers of the "The Bottle". One that turned up on a funk compilation(All Platinum Funk), by Brother to Brother. And a house version of the song by Maysa(Italian Style).
