Album: Pieces of a Man
Label: Flying Dutchman


Funky as hell, this sad tale of a junkie roaming the urban landscape of Any Ghetto, U.S.A. prophesied Heron's own cracked-out existence two decades later. As Kanye West proved when he sampled the track on Common's "My Way Home," this track still feels just as powerful as it did more than forty years after its release.
