Over at the amazing “Vintage Ads” I came across this picture for the off-Broadway musical “Let My People Come.” Wow 70’s, you were so fucked up and so free!
According to WFMU’s Beware of the Blog (where you can download mp3s): ‘”Let My People Come,” helpfully subtitled “A Sexual Musical,” premiered January 8, 1974, and sexual freedom reigned for 106 explicit performances.”
With songs like “Come In My Mouth,” “Give It to Me” and “I Believe My Body” it strikes that perfect balance of 70’s hedonism tempered with the touchy-feely, I’m-okay-you’re-okay-ness of the decade. It’s like the musical “Hair” molested the “Free to Be…You and Me” album and this was the byproduct.
Regardless, I smell a musical desperately in need of a revival! And I really want a Quaalude for some reason.
