    Great jazzy piano! Perfect soundtrack for strolling through a cornfield! 😊

      Thank you! the mix is rough [the song is not on the album], but we’re glad the idea comes through.

    I like the combination of elements… I guess you chose that title just before the N word became impossible for caucasians. People lose their jobs now for saying it even in an academic context. Meanwhile, I still hear it all the time, uncenscored, from so-called black artists. What’s going on?

    Will they be throwing your and John Lennon’s records into the ‘purifying’ fire soon?

      Thank you. And …yes, I’m pretty sure Hell awaits for songs like Woman Is The Nigger Of The World or Rock’ N’ Roll Nigger…
      It’s a war against the “inherently racist”, “sexist” etc. white males, that’s the reason we’re not allowed to spell the words the blacks are allowed to.
      You’re right about the title, and we found out the hard way: the album was “distributed” on iTunes with the N word erased. I couldn’t believe my eyes back then…
      I think “we the people” should have protested / resisted when words like this were starting to get banned…Now the situation’s getting out of control, freedom of speech is just a memory of the past. Total sensorship is the new normal.

        It’s ironic that John Lennon wanted Billy Preston to become a 5th Beatle but Paul M. squashed the idea, saying it was already hard enuf for the 4 of them to get along!
        My point – Usually, when people represent things in a mature, artistic way, they are not harboring any unsavory unconscious tendences. It’s the repressed and the oppressors who feed into that — they are the ones to be wary of, IMO.

          I agree. I also believe that words and ideas of ANY kind should never be banned. Once the censoring starts, there’s no end to it.

            Right, and it’s always the old, “who’s got the power” to do so. And how do they maintain that power..?

            Most dictators who repress on a grand scale do not follow their own dictates. And I would add that many with so-called “legitimate powers” abuse them (in secret) far too often.

            Why? As I say, they still have a lot of stuff to work out, psychologically and spiritually speaking.
