Royal Majesty

"Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast, To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak." ~ William Congreve

This song was on a record album that my brother owned. I think it was recorded around 1969 or so. It was produced and recorded by the Earl Scruggs Revue, and it featured a bunch of artists from all genre's of music.

This particular cut features Tracy Chapman, The Pointer Sisters, Joan Baez, Bonnie Bramlett, and Charlie Daniels, in that order.

It's a gospel song. I think it's funny, now, that Joan Baez had to get her anti-war statement into the lyrics. And Bonnie Bramlett seems to add a reference to drugs in her verse.

I wonder how many of them realize that "His Royal Majesty" is not a reference to King George.

King George? I don't understand the reference.

But they aint talking about King Obama, either.
