Outtakes of the session for this circulate, so are my iPhone and occasionally a take comes up.
It’s a really fun rocker with some fun lyrics but also some great ones
If the man wants to shove us out
We gonna jump and shout
The Statue of Liberty said “come!”
The album overall is unlistenable garbage but this is becoming a highlight of John’s solo works – if the commercial take is buried in muck like most of ‘MG’ & ‘WAB’, otherwise, it’s going to the outtakes.
