STORIES - st LP 73

Yes, the song Brother Louie after being so overplayed for so many years still sounds fresh now.

The original release of Brother Louie included a couple of brief spoken word bits: The white father saying "No Spook in the family!" and the black father saying "No Honk in the family!"

Apparently that was a bit much for /someone/ involved in promotion and radio play, and this version of the single vanished down the memory hole. I heard it on KACY, the dominant rock-format AM station in Los Angeles, circa 1972.

Once again I am waiting to see if an uploaded album has the /original/ version... which ain't likely.
