Thursday

...by th' time nineteen71 rolls round laura had decided it was time to get back, get back to a simpler, more honest time as had been shown by bobs basement tapes that had been circulatin in hep pads a good three years 'n yet th' desire to get back was in th' air still...everyone needed to chill 'n rethink this anti capitalist/pig hatin/lsdmadness that had gripped a generation (in urban locales mainly, th' roobes still believ'd th' governments killin machine/couldn't happen here/dragracin),'n what better way than xcapin into th' past, whether real or imaginary...lauras past as'n angelheaded beatnik in th'boogeedown,cuttin up a stone groove singin in th' subways'n diggin th'beat 'n th'vibes, list'nin to r'n'b on th'radio 'n gettin hep to th'city'n city ways...labelle help out with some add'd authentic galpop/r'n'b grooves 'n make this a real nice thang to get down with...this is'n invitation to take th' el to 169th street 'n 1961...'n thats gotta be good2go in this day as it was backadaze...this elpee was like refuelin for th' continued struggle against th' oppressive state...
