The Curtis Mayfield song will get some company when the Curtis Mayfield box set my lovely wife ordered me arrives.
I can never hear White Rabbit anymore without being reminded of that scene in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas where Raoul Duke's attorney is demanding that Raoul Duke drop the radio into the bathtub and electrocute him when White Rabbit peaks. Turns out that the grapefruits that room service brought up came in handy.
