You can get anything you want....

I cannot believe that I've been blogging some 5 years now (egads!) and have not posted a single reference to the epitome of Thanksgiving tunes.

It's been a staple of FM rock stations every November. It spoke of small town police departments and the Vietnam war. It is every bit as funny, timely, and awe inspiring today as it was when I first unwrapped my LP 18-some-odd years ago.

If you haven't yet experienced Arlo Guthrie's story of Alice's Restaurant Massacre (in five part harmony with full orchestration and stuff), you need to set aside 18:39.

You won't be disappointed.

Go now to YouTube

You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant -- Excepting Alice
You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
Walk right in it's around the back
Just a half a mile from the railroad track
You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
