Sammi Smith, "Help Me Make It Through The Night"


I came across my Sammi Smith C.D. today and loved this all over again. The young need to remember some of these names.  Don't ask me how it all lives up to "elegant restraint."

Behind the dolls is this 20-foot waterfall.  Younguns. Gotta love their goofy carcasses.

Gosh, Banjomyn, I remember our local radio station refusing to play this song... I was 12 or so. Of course, they wouldn't play "Harper Valley P.T.A." either. Too risque, all around.

AH, I'd never heard of her. Thanks. I can hear the comparison to Rondstadt--will get to that version at some point.
