ROCKOLLECTIONS: MLK AND SONGS OF FREEDOM PT.2

Continuing on with our presentation of Martin Luther King and Songs Of Freedom.
I am going to open this one up with another version of the song we left off with.
I will have more biography about Martin Luther King, the greatest of the Pioneers of the Civil Rights Movement.
But there were other pioneers too, including those in music, who were putting themselves out there and singing the same message of equality.
Listen to two of them- Curtis Mayfield with the Impressions, and Nina Simone.
They were really saying it.
Open your ears and mind, and be free!
Oh, forgot to mention on the show that last song is by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young from the live album, 4-Way Street.
 
Here's your choice again of links to listen to Freedom for Free, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

Yes, I can really hear all of the imperfections in your voice.

Actually, the vast majority of the time I listen to you on my little ear buds, but only out of necessity.

Well well...ALRIGHT...Bose!!!

Way to go, man I must sound good on them, lol!

I have Bose head phones and a Rockford Fosgate system for my Truck (Rockford Fosgate is not as good as a Bose system I had back in the early 90's in my car, but it's very decent).

I have had two pairs of AKG Headphones in the last decades.

Wore one out, and I see they improved with the next pair I bought.

It's always the cable that goes bad, now you can just disconnect the cable and get a new one- since there is nothing wrong with the headphones themselves.

I totally agree, but they must be decent ear phones and it must be a decent car stereo.  Luckily, I have both.

Good old Jon, lol!

RJ, you were driving with ear buds in?

You may not have been able to hear an ambulance siren.

Get this post off of here, you could possibly get a ticket with that confession!

Like Perry Mason, you broke down on the stand, lol!

All kidding aside though, the two BEST ways to listen to Rock is with a good pair of headphones or on a good car stereo with the windows closed.

Mike, I committed a cardinal sin, I downloaded the show to my iPod and plugged my ears with the ear buds to listen.  But I have an excuse.  I was in the wife's car.  You can plug the iPod in to her stereo but the sound quality is terrible.  If I had been in my truck, I would have plugged it in to the aux jack, my truck's stereo quality is much better.
