the long title track on 2nd side is a 20-minute long
musical manifesto on race, conformity and (pre-internet)
mass culture. It opens inematically in a cotton field and
travels through a series of feels and styles (an African
hoedown, an acapella choral tongue-twister and a Fred Frith
alike metrical breakdown) each transforming seamlessly into
the next. It culminates at a stand-up comedy club in a diatribe
on "skin colored" Band-Aids, the origin of Valley Girls, the
supposed twenty-seven Eskimo words for snow ("snow, snow, snow")
and "why when you move and go to a new elementary school, all the
kids look the same at first…the 1st side continues with songs that
evolved from a theater piece, "Harangue." The theme seems to be the
inadequacy of economics as an explanation for human endeavor.
This Lp is housed in nice silk-screened sleeve artwork and paste
on back sleeve.
