"Good Thing"

This song was on an album, yes - a 12" wide slab of vinyl, I bought when I was about 11 or 12. This scratched, and no doubt gouged, piece of plastic is sitting in a milk crate about two hours drive from where I sit - with the best songs underlined in pen on the back cover and on the disc itself.

Just get a look at the cover shot, the hair, the ruffles - maybe it was groovy back in '66 when this album came out. Possibly it isn't cracking me up as it should, for I spent many happy hours, years ago, listening and looking at this album. Perhaps this accounts for the way I am today. Hey, NO wisecracks.
