Emitt Rhodes: Mirror (Dunhill)

Harold Bronson, UCLA Daily Bruin, 4 November 1971

FEBRUARY 9th was the day of the famous Los Angeles earthquake. After it was over, the damage totaled $300 million. For me the loss was not so great: one stack of 45 rpm records toppled over. As I proceeded to put them away, I noticed among them a song called ‘Listen Listen’ by the Merry-Go-Round.

Total word count of piece: 925
