i only have eyes for you
still all moony as hell especially after sunday nights first clear sky with a whopping great beauty popping out specially for the first time since i don't know when and still blasting super lunar tunes that just seen to fall out of the record pile as if by magic and none more stunning and bonkers and blooming fabulous than labelle's nine and half minute version of moonshadow.
the first half is kind of straight ahead blissful groove but then everything starts to get beautifully twisted and barking and ad libs go all over the goddam place like...
if you ever lost your mouth or anything in that small area
your lips your teeth your tongue your tonsils your throat
everything around there
you'd be in deeeeep stew
...won't have to brush my teeth if i don't want to
cos i won't have none to brush anyway
no no no
but it's geniusly pulled back and round and the guitar scratching is the most divine thing you'll hear for weeks hell the whole band solos are just outrageous...
you'll die my darlings really you will
labelle - moonshadow
