Love the percussion, fuzzed out psychadelic guitar, chant-like vocals…one of the best songs ever. The 70s RULE, best music ever. From the great city of Chicago (“the jewel of the midwest”)…neighbors to Ides of March just a few miles west over in Berwyn. Singing by Minnie Ripperton, Maya Rudolph of Saturday Night Live’s mother. Tragically Minnie Ripperton died at the young age of 31 from cancer…where’s that cure for cancer ??? (RIP Tony Snow).
