Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Angela Davis (Chris McCloud)
The song title I think is 'Love for Love'. It used to be titled 'Angela Davis.'
The following is a customer review from
"This is quite simply the best feminist album I have ever come across, packed with intelligent, witty and affecting songs that range from What Do You Do All Day and the title track to such gems as Reclaim The Night, Gonna Be An Engineer, and Love For Love (a song previously known as Angela Davis), a duet with Ewan Maccoll. In her 50-year career, Peggy Seeger has written many radical songs and put her name to any number of poignant and powerful albums (what's more, she continues to do so), but this one is exceptionally good even by her high standards. It was initially issued in 1979 or thereabouts on the Blackthorne label in the UK (with a different cover) and Folkways in the US. A decade or so ago Peggy re-recorded some of the songs on this for a Tradition release titled Period Pieces."
We should be looking for a Peggy Seeger song.
