WORLD WAR THREE * BARBARA MASON * BUDDAH 405 * USA
Not the sort of song that I readily associate with Barbara Mason, what's even more surprising is that she wrote it. It is surprising that she wrote it not because I would think her not capable, far from it, it's because if these strong critical sentiments are within her why did they take so long to come out. The song is a trenchant social commentary that ranges across many issues like class (poor man), race (native Americans), drugs (pushers) and other social 'problems', over a strong Funky rhythm with fade-in fade-out vocals and a female backing chorus. It was taken from her Buddah LP Lady Love, and was the eighth of twelve single releases she had on the label from 1971 to 1975.
