So primitive and so earnest. I plop this baby on the turntable now and then, just to laugh and wonder what they hell they were thinking. For fun, play around with the left/right speaker control when you listen to this. All the way to one side and all you can hear are the vocals. All the way to the other side and all you can hear is the music. Play along with the vocals or do karaoke to the music. A little chunk of history that everyone needs to hear at least once. Yes, even your mom.
