The Promised Land

Today’s the birthday of America’s most famous civil rights leader and an icon for Human Rights, Martin Luther King Jr. The “B” side is an excellent blog about the B-side tracks on various 45s, but today they seem to be focusing on the A-side of MLK’s “Top of the Mountain” (“I’ve been to the mountain top”) speech which was delivered on April 3rd, 1968, in Memphis, Tenn. The speech turned out to be incredibly prophetic, and sadly he was assassinated the following day, on April 4th. The “B” side have posted up a scan of the 7″ label as well as the audio of the great speech, which you can stream or download.
