Song: The Mad Again

Mp3 Audio Mp4 "video" The Mad Again               (apologies to Lewis Carol) Lyrics by Harley Halpern, Music by Doug Smith   ‘Twas Grunin and the P.A.A.

You have to imagine the joys of listening to "Dark Side of The Moon" on an 8-track that had to fade-out and click-thru to the next track even if the song wasn't finished. Not the medium for Pink Floyd, that's for sure. But Elton John and Rod Stewart and Jeff Beck sounded just great, tooling down the road.
