Going Back to the Summer of 1971-- Part 5

Continuing with Bob Stroud's annual Roots Salute to Summer, this time the Summer of 1971. His words after the song, mine in parentheses.

EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY-- ROD STEWART-- From his third release out a couple weeks now.
BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER-- ARETHA FRANKLIN-- brilliant rendition by the Queen of Soul. (You want Soul? You can't handle this much Soul!!)

KEEP PLAYING THAT ROCK AND ROLL-- EDGAR WINTER-- From the greatest soul to white trash. From his White Trash album.
JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR-- MURRAY HEAD--

THAT'S THE WAY I ALWAYS HEARD IT SHOULD BE-- CARLY SIMON-- Brand new song from an artist who was new to most of us anyway. In the top ten, her initial hit from her debut, self-titled album.
CHANGE PARTNERS-- STEVE STILLS-- Hit-bound from his upcoming album, Stills II.

CHICAGO-- GRAHAM NASH-- From his first solo album, Songs for Beginners. (Another CSN guy.)
SIMPLE SISTER-- PROCUL HARUM--

A Few More Songs to Come from Early June 1971. --RoadDog
