Listen to CHRIST, HOW EASY IT COULD BE by Curt Newbury.

If by chance you thought the title was the best thing about this song (and really, who could blame you? It's as good as Champagne Supernova or You Gotta Quit Kickin' My Dog Around), you're in for a pleasant surprise.

First, he's from Dallas, which should please all you nasty longhorns out there. Second, the album cover from which this is taken is equally awesome. Third, the tune is quite engaging, if very obviously from the Sound Factory in 1970. Fourth, and I don't know how plausible this is (mind you he is from Texas), but "Hopefully this is not the same Curt Newbury who became a child erotic photographer! All over google all you can find is information about this guy Curt Newbury who is this freaky child photographer and nothing about this album. Maybe it is the same guy, some of those hippies got into some really freaky stuff after that movement dissolved."
