MA-79 - 45s & Favorites, Disc 14

It's not a pathetic attempt to recapture lost youth.  It's a fun look back at simpler days.  That's it, that's the ticket!

Yes, Track Five is a bunch of screeching by Yoko Ono.  But this was the flip side to Power to the Peole, and I listened to it about half as many times as the A-side, so I can chant and huff and "yee-yaa-yee-yaa" right along with Miss O.

Track Nine is a brilliant deconstruction of the whole "Love Jones" nonsense.

Track Ten is from The King of Elfland's Daughter.

Anyway, I hope you have fun and reflection.
