Weekend Musical Twofer
Minneapolis- native alt- country/ rock band The Jayhawks released their latest album, "Paging Mr. Proust," co- produced by R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, in April 2016. This is one of the cuts from that album, "Quiet Corners & Empty Spaces."
Our second selection was released in 1970 by Los Angeles- based blues/ rock band Canned Heat, "Let's Work Together," which made the top 10 in both the U.S. and U.K. We endorse the lyrics as timely for the Trump resistance; of course feel free to boogie, as the band intended.
Together we'll stand, divided we'll fall
Come on now people, let's get on the ball
And work together, come on, come on
Let's work together, (now now people)
Because together we will stand
Every boy, every girl and man
People, when things go wrong, as they sometimes will
And the road that you travel, it stays all uphill
Let's work together, come on, come on
Let's work together
You know together we will stand
Every boy, girl, woman and man
