451 Commercial Avenue,
Apartment K, Richmond, California
September 9th 1951

Dear Lester,
I'm sorry I didn't write before,
And because this record wasn't sent,
Which I intended doing before this,
Everything went wrong.

Tonight, we got together and kept the kids up,
And decided to have a little fun making this record.

Well of course, coming up,
We didn't have any trouble, we had a lot of fun.
Momma slept all the way, and I didn't get tired of driving.
Was over anxious.
We got in about 12:45,
Got to Richmond, woke the family up.
And there are so many things I could say,
I just can't get them together...
I'll let you hear from somebody else.

    General CommentThis is just an awesome opening bit with the surface noise and old timey feel before the bass starts on the next track. While I'm at a stop light or pulling out of a parking lot, I like to play this loud just so it will lead into the deep rumble of Fixed Income to start my drive while people who don't know what real music is look on curiously.
    Most people won't consider bits like this "music" as they see it as useless talking - so you won't hear this on your FM dial anytime soon - but audio bits are a great way to convey an emotion or just experiment with sounds and samples you can find (like Revolution 9 on a larger scale for example - not that I'm comparing though....)
    I don't really know if this track has a meaning outside of sampling purposes, but I just had to get that off my chest - and so ends my rant
