Closet mixes

The VU’s third album was a great contrast to the high energy of the previous ones. A mix by MGM/Verve’s Val Valentin was originally used but there was also another mix by Lou which changed the dynamics of the tracks considerably.

Open Your Eyes

August 1, 2017

Don’t say you weren’t warned.

Video games train the kids for war.
Army chic in high-fashion stores.
Law and Order’s done their job.
Prisons filled while the rich still rob.
Assassination politics.
Violence rules within our nations’ midst.
Well ignorance is their power tool.
You’ll only know what they want you to know.

The television cannot lie.
Controlling media with smokescreen eyes.
Nuclear Politicians picture show.
The acting’s lousy but the blind don’t know.

Open your eyes. See the lies right in front of ya.

They scare us all with threats of war.
So we forget just how bad things are.
You taste the fear when you’re all alone.
They’re gonna get’cha when you’re on your own.

The silence of conspiracy.
Slaughtered on the alter of apathy.
You gotta wake up from your sleep.
‘Cause meek inherits earth six feet deep.

Open your eyes. See the lies right in front of ya.

Wonder Woman is back in the news with a new movie. Which gives me the perfect excuse to listen (?!?) to this comic book. If you’d like to listen to this comic book too then click here.

There were a number of these “Peter Pan” records and comics produced in the late 1970s. I enjoyed this one immensely and am now on the lookout for more.

Surprisingly the story in the comic book that accompanies this record is unique and not a reprint from an earlier DC comic. The artwork is surprisingly good too. According to the GCD it was drawn by Rich Buckler and inked by Neal Adams and Dick Giordano from a period when both were at the top of their game.
