Reflections Of My Life

One of the great songs of the 70's.

This song played in a documentary on Viet Nam in the early seventies.
It was about Company C, the men of who refused a direct order to march down the middle of a road (ordered to by an idiot OCS officer Im sure!).
They told the officer that no way were they going to walk down that road, that they should stick to the jungle.
At one point they were taking a break laying around and this song was playing.
It really gave you a sense of the futility of the Viet Nam war.

I wish more of their music had made it to the states.
"I See The Rain" is one of their terrific songs that never made it across the water--listened to only by music esoterics like myself.
