16 Legendary Covers From 1969 & ‘70 As Sung By:

Pyramid/Cleopatra

Hey, man is that Freedom Rock? From the vaults of some hippy’s dusty reel to reel recordings comes this ancient archive. This well-intentioned retrospective may benefit from the renewed interest if only for the sake of nostalgia. Production and sound quality is quite good. If nothing else, your parents may be inclined rescue it from the untimely death that most of these overpriced “drinkcoasters” ultimately suffer. And the songs are: “Travellin’ Band” by CCR, “Natural Sinner” by Fairweather, “Cottonfields” by the Beach Boys, “United We Stand” by Brotherhood of Man, and well, you should get the idea. God, do my ribs hurt. Cleopatra Records, 13428 Maxella #251, Marina Del Rey , CA 90292
