6 years old, at my grandma’s on east side of Detroit, laying on that wine colored carpet with the cream swirls watching wide-eyed at a black and white television set that only had 4 channels. That night the whole world only need one.
The music made us see colors.
Hearing this made me cry for I long for that time again so many years ago. It also reminds me that this was some of the best harmonies on any record they ever recorded.
