Tuesday Musics (Belated Short-Week Edition): “Compared to What?” by Eddie Harris & Les McCann

This is a live 1969 recording from the Montreaux Jazz Festival of this cover of Eugene McDaniels’ song (also recorded on Roberta Flack’s first album the same year):

Dedicated this week to the student protestors of Quebec.

Love the lie and lie the love,
A-hangin’ on, with push and shove.
Possession is the motivation
That is hangin’ up the goddamn nation.
Looks like we always end up in a rut (everybody now!):
Tryin’ to make it real — compared to what?
