    I have to keep pinching myself and saying, "We're not back in the 1960s anymore" based on what was acceptable in that particular time frame as opposed to where we are today. Thanks

    The term “Dixie” is associated with the old South, aka the Confederate states which leaves a bad taste in some people’s mouths. Being that this was the mid 60s and during the Civil Rights movement,...

    You closed your comment with an excellent point in that doing this song "just wouldn't fly today." It shows again, how we have evolved as a society and as a culture. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Great observation, CookKatz. Along with the examples you cited, we have to also give credit to the HDH songwriting/production team. Note that on this song you can feel the waves rise and fall...

    "Your Love is Wonderful" is indeed a spectacular, single worthy song. If I am correct, it was never even placed on what we call 'a regular album' as a filler song. T

    I really like "Different World" in that it demonstrates another the many writing/producing styles of HDH. I recall that the mono single version I heard 'back in the day' used a special reverb effect...
