I finally got Saturday’s Kids on the CD Extras. It was a really good song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/8/19 3:22am Scraps:

On the other hand, John, Rob Sheffield just hates =Entertainment!=. Some people really despise political rock. Man, it’s great music to me....

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/8/19 3:25am Scraps:

side 1, six songs from “Ether” through “Guns Before Butter”, is perfect.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/8/19 3:51am Scraps:

John, I don’t know if you’re joking, but Parliament (as the Parliaments) did “(I Wanna) Testify” straight, not mangling the verb. A single to show:

Avatar Sun. 9/8/19 3:53am mariano:

Very "Paperback Writer" vibe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/8/19 3:53am Scraps:

Huh. Now I look at it more closely, it says G. Clinton as the co-writer.... hmm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/8/19 3:59am Scraps:

Okay, right they were the originals.... Johnnie Taylor, and The Dells, etc, covered. I used to know this....

Greetings from a sunny Shropshire in UK. Keeping it freeform.

Hippie Johnny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/8/19 4:23am Scraps:

Ahhhhh.... I love “I’m Straight”. I dislike the message; I even think it’s stupid; but as a song, it’s great.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/19 4:29am mariano:

Hey, Tom played this one last show, led to an interesting discussion on the Dead.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/19 4:30am jahmon:

Oh wow, anyone remember the video for Lovich's "It's You"?
Avatar Sun. 9/8/19 5:12am mariano:

There's a story, probably apocryphal, about the sheet music to "What Is This Thing Called Love?" being released in the UK with a typo: "What Is This Thing Called, Love?"
