Nice! Haven't heard that in a while.

Nice lyrics... one wonders if 50 years has been "enough time".

@#2 ... Haven't heard that in a while. ...

Nor have I.

An hour ago, I just happened to have digitized my vinyl copy of John Mayall's The Turning Point live album which opens with that song.

And ends with the awesome Room To Move.

I haven't listened to that album is, probably, 35 years or so.

But yeah, the lyrics to The Laws Must Change are surprisingly apropos nowadays.

Billy Bragg - Everywhere

Powerful song.


Excerpt of the lyrics...

Dig in boys for an extended stay
Those were final orders to come down that day
Waiting to be saved in the Philippines
You'll wait forever for the young Marines

Now I believe to be here is right
But I have to say that I'm scared tonight
Crouching in this hole with a mouth full of sand
What comes first the country or the man?...

@#10 ... John Mayall - Room to Move (The Turning Point, 1969)

memories... ...

Yup.

btw, the back of my copy of The Turning Point album (purchased back in the day) says Copyright 1969, not 1970 as youtube indicates.
