Times Are Hard Friends Are Few

Chillin' with a heavy head cold ain't no fun but with some spiritual righteous vibes from Del Jones 'Positive Vibes' 1973 LP, re-issued in Japan, that's similar in vain to the legendary Gil Scott-Heron, helps ease the suffering! This is one of those top-notch albums that really needs your it out..Njoy!
