Listener comments!

  10:47pm mikey c:

the childrens voices from the family of god song, where did i hear them before?..........Got it!! marc, don and mel used them on the intro to "i can feel him in the morning' from grand FUNK? survival........ps. i don't know how that and the other 3 grand funk albums got in my collection, you've got to believe me , pleeeeeease
  9:18am Charlie:

I didn't know anyone else had used that record of children's voices (which I believe was from an old Folkways album). I'll have to look for that Grand Funk song. Grand Funk were all right by me, by the way.
