For Record Store Day 2016, fans of Lotti Golden will have a reissue of her single, "Sock It to Me Baby/It's Your Thing," backed with an original song, "Annabelle With Bells (Home Made Girl)." The A side is a cover, the B side is an original by Golden that is in the mode of the LP: urban poetry (as cited by other review) girl group moxie, and teen angst, informed by her immersion in the late '60s counterculture. For some reason the B side wasn't on the LP, but it's on this remastered version with new cover art! The Record Store Day promo states an LP reissue will follow! http://www.recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/8596

"Motor-Cycle," Lotti Golden's 1969 debut on Atlantic records, groundbeaking for its time (or any time) is an autobiographical account of her immersion in NYC's East Village life, described in tough urban rock poetry with infusions of funk, R&B, soul and jazz. If you can find it, it is well worth the effort!
