Dude (The Highway Life) - OCR DS428f front

After the surprise success of ‘Hair’, MacDermot & Ragni set about their next ‘country tinged’ project which unfortunately failed to emulate the formers success. Although it’s failure is mainly down to the complex and barely understandable storyline, there is little doubt that the music deserves its place in musical history.
