It is impossible to rate this LP too highly. Every moment of this record documents an immensely fragile moment in the history of America, and one that was about to be (thankfully) torn asunder by desegregation and the Civil Rights movement. If you wonder what America's lasting artistic contribution to the world is, look no further. This is *music*.
