It's Earth Day.... so here is a compilation with the ECO balance as the theme!

Can you feel the manmade mist
As it starts to twist your lungs?
Slower than guns

Breathe deep
As you enter sleep
Feel secure it’s all around you

Can you see the golden brown
As it circles round your town
Town coming down

Smokin’ stacks on industry’s backs
In this land of a cigarette pack
Feel secure there all around you

Miles and miles of gasoline fumes
In the air like transparent tombs
Feel secure there all around you

DDT making bugs relax
There in your food like poison tacks
How about that?

I remember as a kid chasing a truck like this around the neighborhood as they sprayed for mosquitoes

Hi Bill, So nice to see you return. Thanks for another great collection.It must have been tough picking which Country Joe songs to use. And of course there wasn't room for Gregory Peccary.

Who is making those new brown clouds?

Hope you are well,

Oh yeah, We used to do the same thing when we were kids. Got on our bikes & followed that truck around. God knows what it did to us!! Can you imagine that happening today!? And welcome back, hope you're feeling better. Very nice comp. for Earth Day. I'm still going through all of those Moby Grape posts from last month, and enjoying them all. A lot of great music to digest, and using some of the artwork too. Larry
