Contact, Pt. 3: Lady Marmalade In Space

     First of all, is it not just so awesome that people dressed up like this, in the name of...something..., back in the Seventies?  Yes, yes it is, thank you.  
     This tasty bit o' space funk is from the same LaBelle album (Nightbirds) that gave us "Lady Marmalade", and you can hear it.  But in this tune they're not warbling about some hooker on the streets of New Orleans.  Oh no.  They're singing about children.  Space children.  (This was one of the records from the lesbian treasure trove of which I wrote previously).  
     Boom.  Genius.
(P.S. Read, or re-read, Contact Parts 1 & 2 if you must).
