I also liked that song--sort of a morbid fascination, since it was an anthem for those on the other side of the barricades in 1970, when I was a strong supporter of President Nixon and the Vietnam War.
I was too young for that at the time, actually thought this song was scary, I was that young. Without the bad associations that you have, I only hear the power of it as an adult, it’s just a remarkable song.
Did you notice Billy Preston on piano? He was worried there for a minute when she appeared to be losing it, then that big smile when she pulled it back together.
