I wished to find a warrant for being. I need no warrant for being, and no word of sanction upon my being. I am the warrant and the sanction.
sounds like a bunch of hippie crap to me

That song was a little overplayed as a kid, but they did have some good blues tunes.

Pre-internet, that was one of the hardest records to lay hands on, because even if you did know that it was Jim Pepper who wrote Witchi-Tai-To, the fact that it was recorded under the hippy-dippy name of "Everything is Everything" would escape recollection.

From the list of all-time best-selling singles, is one country tune. Would you have ever guessed it to be....

I'm used to my threads being hijacked in this forum. But to hijack it with all this old school folksy back-woods hippy music is just insufferable.

I pressed the play button on one of those You Tube videos above (the one with the four faces) and my ears jumped off my head and drop kicked me in the butt. I didn't even know they could do that! I had to apologize for half an hour while they sulked in the corner and had too promise them that I'd never again play "music" like that in front of them before they finally came back.

You had to know anything an old fud like me listens to is likely to be anathema to post-disco musical sensibilities. I don't know why I like Broken Barricades so much - maybe the lyric and the odd construction work together somehow.

There is something about which to compliment music of the post-disco era, and that is the 12-inch single, and how it can provide an extra dimension to a tune. I know I was pleased and delighted the first time I heard 'Tainted Love' morph into 'Where Did Our Love Go'. One of my last purchases of vinyl records included the never-before-heard 12-inch-single version of Two Tribes. I could have done worse.
