    Rojah Steffens:

    On the second ten-inch reel, there is a great deal of one note doodling,
    tuning, etc. But a couple of very badly recorded, yet fascinating, tunes
    are revealed. The first is a bossa nova, which makes one think that it
    was recorded in early 1980, after Bob and Jacob Miller had returned from
    a record promotion trip to Brazil. There are at least two guitarists in
    the room, one of whom lays down a lilting Brazilian bed as Bob sings.

    PRAY FOR ME

    tell all the weakhearts
    stay away from my door
    just can't take your evil no more
    cup is full and runneth over
    far as I can see
    shally wally wah
    did you say your prayer
    shall wally way
    pray for me [repeated 4 times]

    hey Mr. Klansman get down from the tree
    can't stand to see
    the suffering of the majority...

    The final song that reveals itself is one that Bob's Rasta lawyer, Diane
    Jobson, says is among her all time favorites of Bob's unreleased
    masterpieces, a political diatribe against the folly- ticians, whom Bob
    felt betrayed him at every opportunity. (Remember his famous line "never
    make a politician grant you a favor/they will always want to control you
    forever"? This song could easily be a follow-up.)

    CAN'T TAKE YOUR SLOGANS NO MORE

    can't take your slogans no more [repeated 4 times]
    wipe off the paint and the slogans
    all over the street
    confusin' the people
    while the asphalt burns
    our tired feet
    I see borders and barriers
    segregation and riot
    sufferation of the majority
    will always be with you and me...

    can't take your slogans no more...
    no more sweet talk from the hypocrites...
    no more sweet talk no more fussing
    no more sweet talk from the pulpit

    Many years ago I told Chris Blackwell of the existence of these tapes
    and urged him to make safety copies on DAT as soon as possible. It
    didn't matter, I said, who owned what. But if the tapes were allowed to
    further decompose, no one would have anything to fight over in the
    future. To this day, no such digital masters have been struck.
